it was amazing
bookshelves: memoir

This book made me really homesick and I had to read it in small doses. Sara Roahen really GOT New Orleans and New Orleanians. I appreciated her passion for the food, history and people. I feel as if I grew up doing things a certain way in NOLA and didn't know why such wacky ways of doing things were rooted. Sara filled me in and I am grateful!

Laurean Reynolds Same for me. After many years a New Orleanian leaving after Karina, I loved this book. No one know New Orleans like a native but this book will give insight into the place and it's folks.REAL homesick!
