Confederacy of lushes

    Research output: Journal PublicationsReview article


    Moore reviews the book Liquor, by Poppy Z. Brite. New Orleans, described in the cover synopsis as “America’s most sublimely ridiculous city,” is perhaps also America’s most often misrepresented, at least where literature is concerned. There’s much more to the city than Mardi Gras, the French Quarter, sexually omnivorous vampires, Cajun accents, and ultraviolet prose. In Liquor, Poppy Z. Brite has set out to chronicle the lives of some New Orleans residents in a more realistic way than most other writers, including Brite herself, have done in the past.
