From Bob Dylan and bluesman Charlie Patton to novelists Norman Mailer and Gustave Flaubert, from the Mississippi Delta and to his adopted home of New Orleans, Tom Piazza covers a lot of ground as a writer. His works include the novel, "City of Refuge," and the non-fiction book, "Why New Orleans Matters." His new book is a collection of essays on a wide array of topics titled "Devil Sent the Rain."
