This is a story of poverty and violence set in New Orleans. More importantly, it is a story about a dedicated young man with very little education and his friends who try to create something worthwhile in this impoverished neighborhood. He is crippled and finally dies in his attempt to do what is right. Yet, there is redemption. His work is carried on by unlikely individuals who had once been his enemies. Vicki Salloum has created a novella that reflects some of the problems and the spirit of this unique city. A well written book showing much sensitivity regarding a slice of humanity.

This is a beautifully written book evoking both the beauty and harshness of life in New Orleans. It is a difficult subject, dealing with the downtrodden in a forgotten neighborhood, but Vicki Salloum brings the reader in to experience an unexpected richness and sense of community among the residents of Krakow Street. A bold and imaginative story by an accomplished writer.
