A quick read with an author who "gets" New Orleans. Most of the book concerns itself with only The French Quarter, so the title is a little misleading.

I did see one glaring mistake and I'm sure native New Orleanians will find others to quibble about.

The next to the last chapter was more about Blount's friend than New Orleans and should have been excised from the book.

Feet on the Street would have rated a four instead of a three from me IF it had covered more of New Orleans and hadn't had the wasted next to last chapter. ( )

With lyrical writing, Blount narrates his various stops around New Orleans. Entertaining travel essay, but maybe not my favorite on New Orleans. ( )
