Fry, Macon 300

Macon Fry

Macon Fry is an author and educator; for 35 years he’s lived on the watery fringe of New Orleans, occupying a self-built stilt house outside the levees on the seasonally flooded shore of the Mississippi River. His new book, They Called Us River Rats, traces the miraculous survival of the outsider colony Fry calls home. It is a story of life on the river and a history rich with accounts from over a century of people adapting their homes and lives to an ever-changing environment.
