Read in September, 2008

This is a story about New Orleans, told through several, very different, characters. The characters are compelling and the author did a good job of distinguishing them from one another. On the down side, the story is very gritty. There is sex and violence, language, and drugs. It all adds to the story, but it doesn't make it a nice story. I think the biggest thing I got from this story is: don't move to New Orleans, it will corrupt your children and ruin your relationships. For an author who lives and teaches in New Orleans I thought there would be a little more redemption for the city.
