Room 220

There’s a fine interview with Win Riley, director of the new Walker Percy: A Documentary Film, over at Room 220. The site is a brand-new arm of Press Street, itself a publishing house of no small repute; earlier this year they published the excellent How to Rebuild a City: A Field Guide from a Work in Progress, and threw a cracking launch party to boot. (For those not from the area, Press Street is a street that runs along the railroad tracks downriver from the French Quarter; it’s the traditional divider between the Faubourg Marigny and the Bywater neighborhoods. Bywater residents know it best as the place where you get stuck in traffic, staring at the broad iron flank of a train.)
