The hidden history of the haunted and beloved city of New Orleans, told through the intersecting lives of nine remarkable characters. “Nine Lives is stunning work. Dan Baum has immersed himself in New Orleans, the most fascinating city in the United States, and illuminated it in a way that is as innovative as Tom Wolfe on hot rods and Truman Capote on a pair of murderers. Full of stylistic brilliance and deep insight and an overriding compassion, Nine Lives is an instant classic of creative nonfiction.” —Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain Nine Lives is a multivoiced biography of a dazzling, surreal, and imperiled city, told through the lives of night unforgettable characters and bracketed by two epic storms: Hurricane Betsy, which transformed New Orleans in the 1960s, and Hurricane Katrina, which nearly destroyed it. Dan Baum brings the kaleidoscopic portrait to life, showing us what was lost in the storm and what remains to be saved. BONUS: This edition contains a Nine Lives discussion guide.

Why do we make the same mistakes over and over? Why do people make crazy choices? Can we change and grow up or are we like the proverbial leopard with his spots? In these nine short stories you'll meet Tim, who's deeply into how things work; Grace, who really needs to be needed; Graham, whose priority is his image and a whole cast of others who find out - eventually - that it is possible to change and grow. Each of the main characters is a different Enneagram type - if you know nothing about the Enneagram it doesn't matter; but you'll probably become fascinated by how true to life and helpful it is.The Bible, the Church and God come into the picture quite a lot - not always with good results. Organised religion may sometimes be more of a problem than a solution. Nine Lives is all about understanding what makes people tick, developing a spiritual life and being truly alive to each moment.

From the author of The Last Mughal (“A compulsively readable masterpiece” —The New York Review of Books), an exquisite, mesmerizing book that illuminates the remarkable ways in which traditional forms of religious life in India have been transformed in the vortex of the region’s rapid change—a book that distills the author’s twenty-five years of travel in India, taking us deep into ways of life that we might otherwise never have known exist. A Buddhist monk takes up arms to resist the Chinese invasion of Tibet—and spends the rest of his life atoning for the violence by hand printing the finest prayer flags in India . . . A Jain nun tests her powers of detachment as she watches her closest friend ritually starve herself to death . . . A woman leaves her middle-class life in Calcutta and finds unexpected fulfillment living as a Tantric in an isolated, skull-filled cremation ground . . . A prison warder from Kerala is worshipped as an incarnate deity for three months of every year . . . An idol carver, the twenty-third in a long line of sculptors, must reconcile himself to his son’s desire to study computer engineering . . . An illiterate goatherd from Rajasthan keeps alive in his memory an ancient four-thousand-stanza sacred epic . . . A temple prostitute, who initially resisted her own initiation into sex work, pushes both her daughters into a trade she nonetheless regards as a sacred calling. William Dalrymple chronicles these lives with expansive insight and a spellbinding evocation of circumstance. And while the stories reveal the vigorous resilience of individuals in the face of the relentless onslaught of modernity, they reveal as well the continuity of ancient traditions that endure to this day. A dazzling travelogue of both place and spirit.

"Have you ever looked at a shooting star and wondered where it came from, how far it has traveled, and how much farther it has yet to go before its journey ends? I have come to believe that my time spent on this earth was for a purpose greater than I myself could ever have imagined. I am a cat." In Nine Lives, authors April Kautzman and Tom Gumbert explore the historical application of tolerance and intolerance through the ages from ancient Egypt to a new beginning for mankind as witnessed by a cat through nine unforgettable lives. As our narrator takes us through this remarkable journey, it reminds us ... "Chief Dan George, a very wise man, once said, 'If you talk to the animals, they will talk with you and you will know each other. If you do not talk to them, you will not know them, and what you do not know, you will fear. What one fears, one destroys.' Talk with me so that i may share my journey with you and we may know one another. Walk with me ..."

Nine Lives tells the story of “Olupitan Ogunrinu,” a bright, ambitious son of a common Nigerian fisherman who battles to assert himself within the social segregation of an elite university community. As he struggles with the moral contradiction, corruption and frivolity around him, he resolves not be a victim in the predatory race to success, even when the immediate battle to “belong” seems lost. A wild pursuit of romance turns to deceit, as Olupitan finds escape in America. But he also finds squalor, loss of dignity and, eventually, illicit wealth. NINE LIVES explores the trial of ordinary Nigerian youths and the despair that drives them across the borders... and beyond. It captures the historical culture of the Nigerian people and the new culture as evolved through decades of social hardship, corruption and misrule.

What a discovery! A remarkable book has been found -- the journal of a cat. Written between 3,000 B.C. and the present, this "first-feline" account by one Clio records her nine extraordinary lives, and contains information...that could rewrite history. How fascinating to read, in Clio's own words, the story behind her naming of the constellations. How charming to see miniature self-portraits illustrating her ingenious invention of the alphabet. How beguiling to hear her description of making the Mona Lisa (clearly a cat aficionado) smile. And there's so much more! Discovered under a dusty couch by Clio's current owner, here is a startling document sure to astound historians, cat lovers, and children alike.
