Fascinating novel about real and diverse New Orleanians: Offers a candid connection to what their lives were and are becoming. After visiting New Orleans, I became fascinated with its rich, international, brutal, gritty and glamorous way of living a life to its fullest. The truly unique citizens there squeeze every moment of joy and triumph out of their difficult lives to keep them going with love and pride in their city and communities. This book gave me a much deeper understanding of the tenacity it takes to hang on to a city so full of corruption and injustice because it is your home. Highly, highly recommend!
