What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

This is a dream of a book, deftly organized, fluidly written, and compelling.--Garry Wills, author of Venice: Lion City



I devoured this book. Jason Berry has a profound understanding of the main ingredients of New Orleans history: race, religion, and music. In this fascinating work, he weaves them together in a luscious, multicolored tapestry of the town's 300 years. Like a wonderful piece of jazz, it has recurring strands and lovely riffs that make the narrative dance.--Walter Isaacson, New York Times best-selling author of Leonardo da Vinci
