From 1921-26, The Double Dealer was operated from New Orleans as, "A National Magazine for the South." The magazine featured works from literary giants like William Faulkner, Djuna Barnes, Ernest Hemingway, Robert Penn Warren, Thornton Wilder and Hart Crane as well as many other writers more lost to time.

Here in our archives, we will be reviving a selection of those works over time.
