Ultimately a disappointing, wearying romp of name-dropping, restaurant-hopping, and fine wine-drinking. Somewhere there was a good story trying to find its way out of the hodgepodge. For those interested in Hurricane Katrina's impact on New Orleans, read Chris Rose's "1 Dead in Attic," Sheri Fink's "5 Days at Memorial," or Douglas Brinkley's "The Great Deluge" all available through the library.

Want to visit New Orleans, both pre & post Katrina? Marvellous Southern storyteller & accomplished journalist Julia Reed saves you the airfare! An atmospheric lovely life tale that begins with Reed's 1991 visit to cover the gubernatorial race & just never ends : she falls in love with the city. Somehow all that is the Big Easy - the marvellous food, incredible music, the saturating climate - becomes clear. Even the tragedy that is Hurricane Katrine is revealed with grace, detail and not a little humour. There's certainly life left still, in the heart of Julia Reed's New Orleans.
