New Orleans is the perfect place to fall in or out of love. The author cannot spare anyone close to her — including herself — the risk of pain, but she also reveals the quirky, funky joys below, beside, and within that slow moving bayou of life that tears New Orleans from river to lake, wild and free,
body and soul.
