There's a quote in this book that says, "I'm not going to try to lay down in words the lure of this place. Every great writer in the land, from Faulkner to Twain to Rice to Ford, has tried to do it and fallen short." I think, however, that Rose has done just the opposite. Through his humor, honesty, emotion, and stories, Rose paints a captivating picture of New Orleans. He really has captured the "lure of this place," through all of its sorrow and hope. Whether you're from New Orleans or not, I really recommend this book.
