Divided into eight Rambles through different parts of the city, this audiobook covers it all: the architecture, music, romance, historical characters (including Walt Whitman and Chuck Berry), and the food. Each Ramble closes with a lagniappe, an extra treat for the reader such as a riff on Gennifer Flowers or a meditation on naked dancing, that shows us why New Orleans, as Roy sees it, is a city "like no other place in America, and yet (or therefore) the cradle of American culture".

I love Roy Blount, Jr and I think this would have been better if he had narrated his own work. His accent and delivery style add much to the story.
