Not About Marie Laveau
on March 12, 2011
This is an interesting book that is not about Marie Laveau so much as it is about the times and the milieu of Marie Laveaux. Altogether, from 287 pages, I would hazard a guess that collectively about 5 pages are about Marie Laveau. This is a book to read if you are interested in New Orleans and New Orleans vodoo in particular, but you will surely be disappointed, as I was, if you go into this book thinking it will be about Marie Laveau.
