This book is lyrical, non-linear, steamy, and I assume it reflects the New Orleans life that it portrays. The author does a great job showing the very messy and vibrant lives of a couple of people. She tackles whites and blacks and the desperation of love, all in the context of parades called secondlines, in New Orleans. Definitely a writer to watch. Makes me want to go back and re-read Virginia Wolf's To the Lighthouse. ...more

this book is so beautiful, so beautifully real, I don't even know what to do with myself. It makes me want to go back to New Orleans right now and bury myself in its lush earthy magic and never, ever leave. More than anything, it makes me want to dance. ...more
