Unfathomable City: A New Orleans Atlas

Like the bestselling Infinite City: A San Francisco Atlas, this book is a brilliant reinvention of the traditional atlas, one that provides a vivid, complex look at the multi-faceted nature of New Orleans, a city replete with contradictions. More than twenty essays assemble a chorus of vibrant voices, including geographers, scholars of sugar and bananas, the city’s remarkable musicians, prison activists, environmentalists, Arab and Native voices, and local experts, as well as the coauthors’ compelling contributions. Unfathomable City plumbs the depths of this major tourist destination, pivotal scenes of American history and culture and, most recently, site of monumental disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill. Join authors and project co-directors Rebecca Solnit and Rebecca Snedeker for a tour through their latest book.
