Faculty Book: "Breach," by Professor Nicole Cooley

 

As a New Orleans native whose parents sat out Katrina in their home and survived, Nicole Cooley (English) had a visceral response to the storm. Breach (Louisiana State University Press), her latest poetry collection, is an elegy to what was lost on the Gulf Coast: people, neighborhoods, and the institutions—from restaurants to houses of worship—that had held communities together for generations. The poems move back and forth in time while Cooley muses on ravaged local landmarks and alludes to the wreckage of September 11, the signature disaster in her adopted hometown.
 
At a Presidential Roundtable about Katrina--Reflections on the Water: Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf Coast, Five Years Later--on September 27, Cooley read from Breach and discussed her recent visits to New Orleans.
