5.0 out of 5 stars this book affected my dreams, September 10, 2009
By 
This review is from: The Year Before the Flood: A Story of New Orleans (Hardcover)
I read this book during the hottest summer ever recorded down here in Austin, Texas. A little bit every night. I found it most enlightening in matters of historical value: life in Texas and Louisiana in the fifties through to the present, especially concerning race matters. And music! I am a musician, and the chapter "Tell It Like It Is" had me reminding myself to encourage all my musician friends to read this. But most importantly, this book affected my dreams. It was there I visited the streets of New Orleans pre-Katrina, courtesy of Ned Sublette. Dark and exhilarating, vibrant and ethereal. Sublette imparts a considerable love for his subject! And I have a newly acquired desire to revisit New Orleans in the flesh (it's been many years) to participate in her rebirth.--Lissa Hattersley
