Writer, professor and former Gambit film columnist Rick Barton releases his latest novel, In the Wake of the Flagship (UNO Press), this week. In the sprawling chronicle spanning centuries of history and a continent, Metacom, a Native American intertribal leader, recounts the absurd ordeal of college basketball coach Richard Janus, who returns from Barton's 2003 novel, The El Cholo Feeling Passes. After a hurricane devastates the region, Janus becomes the interim rector of the public university and must battle an array of factions, from administrators to sports fans. Barton discusses and signs his book at the Garden District Book Shop.
