it was amazing
Read in September, 1992

This is probably one of my three favorite books by Anne Rice. It is set in New Orleans and is about the life of one man and his three families. His white wife and children, his kept quadroon woman and their children, and his slave woman and their child. This book talks about the complexity of race relations in a very personal way and during a time period when people didn't talk about race at all, 1800s. It is not a ghoulish tale, like Rice is known for writing either. It is a period story about the children of this man and how each position in society played out more in their lives than who their father was in New Orleans. It is an incredible book in my opinion. And in case you are interested my two other favorite books by Anne Rice are The Vampire Lestat and Memnoch the Devil.
