Take a walk through the lower echelons of New Orleans with a happily impoverished young writer. Visit bizarre corners of human existence, share a drink, have some visions, talk about it all. This unique book is the account of a young man's desire to experience the world in all its deviant beauty and how the City of New Orleans obliges with consummate strangeness. Taking place in the early nineties, the narrator goes back to New Orleans after having failed there once before, to do it right this time. He's got the urge to perfect his young life on a simple, basic level and to not look away from the beauty and suffering he will find. The house he lives in is filled with New Orleans' lost and searching souls, one of which becomes a challenging and tragic friend that will test all boundaries. This book is an exploration of what it feels like to be young, hungry for meaning, and available to whatever comes along. For those who like Henry Miller, Bukowski, H Thompson, Kerouac, Rimbaud, this book might be for you.
