Poppy Z. Brite

Neil Gaiman, author of American Gods, says of Brite's latest work,"Liquor is a fabulous, funny, foodie New Orleans roller-coaster ride, as gripping as a great Iron Chef episode or Tony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential.

Poppy was born in New Orleans where she lives today with her husband, Chef Chris DeBarr. She has authored six novels and three short story collections. We usually have signed copies of most of her work.

Two years after the opening of Liquor, New Orleans chefs Rickey and G-man are immersed in the life of their restaurant, enjoying a loyal cast of diners, and cooking great booze-laced food. All’s well until a bad review in a local paper not-so-subtly hints that their “silent” backer, celebrity chef Lenny Duveteaux, has ulterior motives.
