  • (1888PressRelease) December 03, 2014 - New Orleans, LA - Monkey Hill Publishing has announced the publication of "A Big Easy Childhood: Memories of Growing Up in Enchanted New Orleans," by local art dealer and author Guy Lyman.

    "This book is intended to document the quirky things about growing up here that you don't experience anyplace else," said Lyman. "It's not the usual stuff about Mardi Gras, jazz and food - it's about the little things that don't make it into books and movies, but are worth remembering."

    From the back cover of the book:

    "Ray's Rollerama. Pontchartrain Beach. McKenzie's. Easter bunnies in the window of Scheinuk the Florist. You'll find these and many other fond memories in this nostalgic look back at growing up in a city unlike any other."

    Actor Bryan Batt calls the book "A fun and honestly nostalgic memoir. For lovers of all things New Orleans, this delightfully quick read captures a slice of our culture and a lot that "ain't dere no more."

    The author, Guy Lyman is a commercial writer and owner of Guy Lyman Fine Art on Magazine Street.

    At under $10, Monkey Hill Publishing expects the book to be an ideal stocking stuffer for the holidays.
