Publisher's Summary

In this exuberant, character-filled saunter though a place he has loved almost his entire life, Roy Blount Jr. writes of a city "like no other place in America, and yet (or therefore) the cradle of American culture". Here we experience it all through his eyes, ears, and taste buds: the architecture, music, romance (yes, sex too), historical characters, and all that glorious food.

This book is divided into rambles through different parts of the city. Each closes with lagniappe, a little bit extra, a special treat for the listener: here a brief riff on Gennifer Flowers, there a meditation on naked dancing. Roy Blount knows New Orleans like the inside of an oyster shell and is only too glad to take us to both the famous and the infamous sights.

Above all, though, Feet on the Street is a celebration of friendship and joie de vivre in one of America's greatest and most colorful cities, written by one of America's most beloved humorists.

    "Why couldn't the author have read this book?"

    I usually love Roy Blount, Jr. Unfortunately, the guy who is reading this book has no clue how to emphasize words in a Southern way, not does he even have a Southern accent. His expression in no way conveys Mr. Blount's humor. I feel like if I actually read the selection my self, I would find it much funnier than I have by listening to it here. I'd give it one star, but I'm sure the author wrote a fine book; it's just too bad that the reader completely messed it up.
