BFB is proud to announce that the books of JoAnne Brasil will soon be added to our list. JoAnne's books have been hailed by Publishers Weekly, Alice Walker, Gloria Steinem, Spalding Gray, and many others.
On June 24, 1973, the UpStairs Lounge—a crowded gay bar in New Orleans’ French Quarter—was fire-bombed. Thirty-two people died in the greatest mass murder of gay men in history. Yet this seminal event in the story of American crime was little noted and never solved.
A new novel, JESUS BURNED, published by Brown Fedora Books, centers on this tragedy and on one man’s tortured search for justice. Pre-publication comments have included: “The book is populated by quirky and wounded characters, ear-ready dialogue, and more than one gloriously surprising plot twist.”
