THE INVISIBILITY CLOAK

By GE FEI Translated by Canaan Morse 

(New York Review Books $14)

Set in Beijing, Cui, a master builder of luxury sound systems for wealthy patrons is also an unlucky loser. Not only does his beautiful wife leave him for another man, but also his sister insists on introducing him to, at least to her, suitable prospects. When, at last, he’s offered the chance to build the ultimate system, he fears he won’t ever be paid. This slim novel is sure to captivate.




GHOSTS OF GOOD TIMES 

Photos by Philip Gould • Text by 

Herman Fuselier (University of 

Louisiana at Lafayette Press $29.95)

“Laissez les bon temps rouler” mon ami. Let the good times roll while we reminisce about the fun we had dancing at the Blue Moon Club gone from New Iberia, but we still have the Blue Moon Saloon in Lafayette. (Mais, dat’s twice in a blue moon, eh?) Thankfully the authors celebrate the clubs still here like Fred’s Lounge in Mamou and over a dozen more in the more than 225 pages of nostalgic photos and stories.
