Praise for Louis Maistros and his novel,
The Sound of Building Coffins:
"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pullsthem 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. Itstuns. It stupefies. No novel since
 A Confederacy of Dunces
has done such justice to New Orleans."

The Sound of Building Coffins
is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fictionI've ever read."
Poppy Z. Brite
"Maistros creates a city that is part dream, part hallucination. His New Orleans embodies both thegrim reality of a particular time and the city's eternal, shimmering beauty. And, with the book'stitle, he provides us with a new and unforgettable metaphor for the sound of hammers at work,whether boarding up for a storm or rebuilding after one."
