After reading the junk Anne Rice wrote in her latest novels, specially the vampire tales/chronicles, I am forced review one of her earliest and best works.
These were the days when Anne still had a flare for writing. No super vampires chatting with Jesus, no fantastic ridiculous tales in this book.
This book brings light to New Orleans History. It is a homage to a place in America that was and remains different from the rest of our nation. This novel contains a great deal of History as well as being a touching drama. The characters are split between races, cultures and social positions.In the end their struggle to find who they really were is successful.
This book is a cult classic, since it seems to me its author won't write anything like it in the near future...
