Okay, so this book is moreso a reminder of what was than something informative for me. I read most of the pieces that comprise this book in the Times-Pic in late 2005/early 2006. Chris Rose is an incredible writer who has the ability to connect to others in a very tangible and emotional way. I actually gave this book to my Mom in 2006 as a Christmas present, but never brought myself to read it until now. It was nostalgia at its worst: it brought back a lot of bad feelings, the feelings that partly led to me leaving the city I was born and raised in. He finds a sense of optimism that my family did, but I wasn't able to. Every time I go home, I feel that longing more and more. One day we will be back, but until that day comes, I can pull this book out and read about roast beef po-boys at Domilice's, watching Rebirth at Maple Leaf, Uptown parade routes, and everything in between and know that there is a reason why I am the person I am. Good stuff.
