Praise For Where We Know

"These selections combine to provide yet another remembrance of the lives changed and neighborhoods destroyed by the devastating hurricane. They also celebrate the city's unwavering spirit." —Publishers Weekly

"From 'Tattooing Katrina' to a marvelous essay on trumpeter Terence Blanchard to a meditation on food as prayer at the New Orleans table, the pieces are both elegiac and hopeful." —Shelf Awareness

"Keeping with the precedent set by it's predecessor, Where We Know has been not only compiled and edited with care but admirably designed to reflect the character and spirit of New Orleans. It's great, not least because it reminds us of the plight of a devastated city still struggling to get back on its feet." —Ace Jet 170
