Published in 1998, it was interesting to review what has changed and what has not. There were some particularly snarky and interesting bits about the city government and police force. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0764562266, Paperback)

As the name implies, Frommer's Irreverent Guides border on the brazen, offering up tidbits such as home addresses for Fats Domino and Anne Rice, the best "dives worth a drive," finding "sexual hardware" in a store with a sense of humor, and where to meet the giant webbed-footed rodents known as nutria. This guide includes the usual traveler's details, as well. In addition to finding out the coolest places in the Big Easy to stay, you'll have answers to interesting questions like, What is zydeco? Who is a true French Creole? And, where do you find voodoo? Grab this book and do as the author urges: visit New Orleans now--it's getting less authentic and more "big-citified" every day. --Kathryn True
