Set on the Mississippi Coast and in New Orleans, Pompeii Man is the story of the descent of an innocent couple into a hell of fear and violence, a world that neither of them could have imagined in the Big Easy, city of music, good food, and Old South charm.

Paul Ruffin, author of four collections of poetry, two books of stories, and editor of eight other books, has had poetry, fiction and essays published widely in journals and magazines such as Southern Review, Southwestern American Literature, Poetry, Connecticut Review, Alaska Quarterly Review, and Michigan Quarterly Review. His work appears in such well-known university texts as W. W. Norton's Introduction to Literature, Harcourt Brace's College Handbook of Creative Writing, Little Brown's Introduction to Literature, and The Longwood Poetry Guide to Writing.
