Peter Abadie: Green in Judgement Cold in Blood

6-7:30PM 

Assassination is the template that binds this work together. Whether it’s the murder of the modern world through a political miscalculation during the Cuban missile crisis or through mistakes made in Indochina, the result would be the same. The individual assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald, innocent Russian peasants, Ngo Diem of Vietnam, his brother, Nhu, and even the Empress of Hungary, is a replete theme that hovers throughout the novel. The self-immolation by a Buddhist monk and the attempted assassinations of Fidel Castro, his brother Raul, and Che Guevara, adds considerable spice to the murderous stew.

Couched behind most scenes are the actions of the four sets of brothers. Whether it’s the Kennedy, the Bundy, the Castro, or the Ngo Dinh brothers, their insatiable desire to rule was paramount in most of their decisions and in two of the four sets, it led to their demise.

Peter Abadie discusses and signs his book, Green in Judgement Cold in Blood.

Martin Bonehouse has retreated into self-imposed exile in New Orleans, where he intends to write a book about the city.  By chance,he stumbles upon the legend of Tambo Bones, a controversial entertainer from the 1940s. Blending fact and fiction, on one level, the novel is one misunderstood man’s quest to rescue the reputation of another. Increasingly obsessed by Tambo Bones, and in particular his notorious Georgia Blues, Martin is driven to record his story.  

 

During the course of the novel, we also discover the nature of Martin’s fall from grace in England that has prompted his escape to New Orleans.

 

"An enthralling storyline and of course with New Orleans as the backdrop, there has to be JAZZ."

Wednesday, October 1st

5-8PM 

At Hotel Modern's Bellcq 

 

After more than three hundred years, New Orleans style is not just sartorial but also venerable. A melting pot of cultures gives rise to the diverse fashion influences of French sophistication, Spanish exuberance and deep Creole roots. Classic trends like jazz style, the ebullient irreverence of Mardi Gras' festive fashion and seersucker's cool lines are quintessentially New Orleans.

The local aesthetic established by the keen eyes at Maison Blanche and D.H. Holmes, master haberdashers at Rubesteins, milliners like Yvonne LaFleur and perfumers Hove Parfumeur formed a foundation on which the city's rising stars reinvigorate and build a new fashion capital. Join author and designer Andi Eaton and discover the Big Easy's stylish legacy and a new side of New Orleans. 

Andi Eaton signs her book, New Orleans Style. Purchase the custom cocktail, created for this occasion, the Creole Sling – Rum, Cognac, Orange and Spice.

This book is available in paperback ($19.99). 

If you are unable to attend, you must call the book shop to order signed books.
