A manic, spicy romp through the kitchens, back alleys, dive bars, and drug deals of the country's most sublimely ridiculous city, author Poppy Z. Brite masterfully shakes equal parts ambition, scandal, ?le powder, cocaine, and murder, and serves Liquor straight up, with a twist.
“Liquor is world-class satire and perfect New Orleans lit.”—Andrei Codrescu, NPR commentator, author of Casanova in Bohemia
“Once both cult-worshipped and mainstream-reviled for her edgy investigations into supernatural and human horror, Brite, now more concerned with the more-or-less ordinary side of life and her home turf of New Orleans, emerges as a writer of honesty and wit.”—Publishers Weekly
