"NONE BUT THE RIGHTEOUS is a southern gothic fever dream, a voodoo-laced journey through the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Set adrift when his hometown of New Orleans is ravaged by Hurricane Katrina, Ham struggles for belonging between the Atlanta home of a childhood friend and the rural Alabama home of the mother of his child. As he reckons with his impending fatherhood, Ham navigates his new circumstances under the guidance of the spirit of St. Martin de Porres, whose relic was given to him by his foster mother when he was a child..." 

Chantal James lives in Washington, D.C., and has been published across genres—as a poet, fiction writer, essayist, and book reviewer—in such venues as Catapult, Paste, Harvard’s Transition, The Bitter Southerner, and more. James’s honors include a Fulbright Fellowship in creative writing to Morocco and a finalist position for the Alex Albright Creative Nonfiction Prize from the North Carolina Literary Review in 2019.
