New Orleans Noir
New Orleans Noir | Julie Smith
2 posts | 1 read | 2 to read
New Orleans is a third world country in itself, a Latin, African, European (and often amoral) culture trapped in a Puritan nation. New Orleans Noir is a sparkling collection of tales exploring the city's wasted, gutted neighbourhoods, its outwardly gleaming 'sliver by the river', its still raunchy French Quarter and other hoods so far from the Quarter they might as well be on another continent. It also looks back into the past, from that recent innocent time known as 'pre-K' to the mid-19th century, the other time the city was mostly swampland.

1. I love the train, but car is so much more convenient.
2. New Orleans is amazing (and I love how many Littens agree)! I've really enjoyed San Fransisco and Denver, but my favorite is a piece of land we own just north of Dallas, PA on Forkston Mountain.
3. Planning on a short weekend excursion to Leesburg, VA at the end of August for a free concert and some breweries. Any Littens in the area?

This whole series about San Francisco lawyer Rebecca Schwartz is not in the Litsy database, so I picked another one of her books (also on my kindle). I picked these up because I have a good friend named Rebecca Schwartz and the book description made me laugh. A little bit dated, but a fun read. #MountTBRChallenge #18
