"So lovely to look at, so pleasant to hold, with a bit of intrigue or insight on every page."--The Times-Picayune
This book of essays and art was compiled in the fall of 2005 while the writers were living in exile and watching their city drown. This lovingly designed paperback edition opens with a line of cars leaving New Orleans ahead of Hurricane Katrina and ends in a mad Mardi Gras romp.
The anthology, structured like a jazz funeral, includes essays by Jason Berry and Toni McGee Causey as well as reproductions of ninteenth century prints of the city.
