From Basin Street brothels to bayou plantations, the comic epic of a cooch dancer's fall and rise. New Orleans, 1913: After running afoul of religion and a razor, Cora embarks on a bizarre odyssey into the heart of Cajun country to work for Miss Godd, an eccentric with a few dark secrets of her own. When Cora's past comes home to roost, she is accused of a grisly murder. A scarred stripper at war with God... An overweight voodoo priestess in a funk... A menopausal belle trying to resurrect her dead lover... A lonely killer who hugs his victims to death... ... an unforgettable cast of characters in an irreverent tour de force ..." the writing is excellent..." Camilla Hornby, Agent, Curtis Brown Ltd "It's certainly an enjoyable read, which thrives with the bawdy character of New Orleans." Rosemary Davidson, Editor, Bloomsbury Publishing
