You can now order Whiskey in the Garden of Eden online
Still looking for cover art. Please send suggestions.
Just back from New Orleans where we went to my brother's wedding. It's devastating, the neglect: the Lower Ninth Ward is all but abandoned, block after block of empty, boarded-up house, weeds growing from their gutters. Stroll the French Quarter, though, and you'd never know anything had happened. Surreal in the extreme.
No one's forgotten how to party, though - my brother's shindig was wild and wonderful. And the Marigny Bunny Hop and Easter Bonnet Bar Crawl in his neighborhood, the Faubourg Marigny, was unforgettable: I stumbled on a krewe of gay men in tutus with elaborate hats decorated with swans, flowers, easter eggs -- magnificent! I'll post a picture when I get it on the computer.
