YES! We have more autographed Gene Krupa items available here and here!

Krupa fans seem to be multiplying like jack rabbits these days, so good memorabilia on him is disappearing quick. This neat Music Corporation of America (MCA) promo photo is especially neat because it is inscribed quite personally in fountain pen ink, "To Andy, one of the nicest guys I know. Stay in there! Gene Krupa". Andy (I presume) has responded in fountain pen in the upper margin: "Given to me Sat. Nite, July 13,'46, Convention Hall - Asbury Park, N.J." Dragsville: this great photo was at one time pasted to a scrap book page and someone peeled it off (should have kept it on there!) so there is a pretty consistent wrinkling throughout the photo. Fortunately, this isn't too distracting if the photo is under glass or in hard poly sleeve (which is what I will ship it in).

The Sound of Building Coffins
by Louis Maistros

Signed copies available exclusively on the net here at Louie’s Juke Joint, just click this link to order!

Quotes:

"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
