What to do...
By Erik VV
Listen, you know what, you already like this book. It’s good for all kinds of reasons. Chan is a wonderful artist and writer – he’ll get you right in there, right where you want to go… to the heart of the wasteland and he’ll make you feel a little bit of hope in the face of tragedy. It’s a strong project and it deserves all the praise it has won, but you know all this already… you already know that you’re about to click the ‘buy now’ button. Go ahead, you should do that, but forget about Paul Chan and Becket for a minute - here’s really why you should buy this book: it’s for the one short text by Kalamu ya Salaam titled “What to do with the Negroes?”
Waiting for Godot is one of my favorite plays. Its minimal staging and structure always left a lot to context, and i can't imagine a more uncanny place than New Orleans. This gorgeous ebook illuminates the complex choreography behind the scenes--the organizing of people and the building of allegiances necessary to enact even this most modest of plays in such a fragile and fraught place. The elegant design of the ebook echoes this sensitivity, but also carries a dense power in its exhaustive display of documents, notes, and ephemera.
Who knew an ebook could look this good??

This is by far the most substantial and handsome ebook in my iPad library. Unlike 99% of other ebooks out there, waiting for Godot in NOLA is really a historical, practical, and aesthetic document, couched within an immersive, visually rich reading experience. It takes the form of a how-to guide, detailing firsthand the organization of the play, from conception to planning to staging. But more than that, the ebook gives a concrete sense of the wide matrix of people, research materials, and aesthetic decisions that reveal the project to be more than just the staging of beckett's legendary play, but an on the ground account of social and cultural immersion in an alien landscape.
For anyone who's been waiting for ebooks to be both substantive and gorgeous and finally look like they come from the 21st century, the wait is over!!

An attractive digital translation of a text that is itself a translation of sorts. While I didn't make it down to NOLA for a performance, this book seems to be a comprehensive document of the impetus and ethos behind the project. Highly recommended to those interested in Beckett, New Orleans, or both.
