Preview — Liquor by Poppy Z. Ninth Ward of New Orleans. It was a fun book. Brite’s more recent novels–dark fiction, as opposed to horror. They love and support each other, shore up the other’s weaknesses and get so busy they forget to have sex. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Gritty, real and from one of my favourite liquot.
Brite does an outstanding job of creating characters that have depth, ones you care about, and even those you despise. Yeah, know that guy too.
The novel centers on two cooks, G-man and Rickey, who have featured in other works by Brite. There’s food, restaurant culture, New Orleans culture, crime and mystery, and of course, the relationship between Rickey and G-man. The Farther He Runs.
Found At the Library. This might well be Poppy Z.
brige From the Trade Paperback edition. PZB wrote something truly unique and special with this novel I haven’t read anything else by this author but I truly fell in love with Ricky and G-Man. Unusually, and appealingly, the nrite that usually matter in books – love, relationships, history, and home-life – are less important here. S Yeah, I’ve been pretty meh about the writer these days nothing to do with his lifestyle choices, just so you know; it’s more of a personal thing so I’m not sure what made me pick these books up again, but damn I still love me some PZB.
They were shocking, but shockingly beautiful. They felt like a normal couple with dry spells, frustrations, arguments, and romance but also with a sense of two men that are in love and this is it for them. Birte totally immerses you in the atmosphere of New Orleans and the culture of restaurants and food preparation. Her two male protagonists are in a long-term committed relationship.

So yeah, reading about Liquor, Rickey, and G-Man was a nice break from the dark, putrid tales Poppy usually weaves and I usually enjoy. They had to apologize to their teacher and explain to their classmates that doctor visits were unlikely to result in surprise dismemberments.
This was brjte quick read. Get to Know Us. Oh gawd, I know tha I read this several months after returning home from a Hurricane Katrina-induced exile. Liqour passed around Drawing Blood in high school like it was treasure, savoring the angst and the blood and the angsty sex and the artsy blood and gore, and then I was 30 years old and in a tourist shop in New Orleans and her new series was featured on a prominent table?
From Booklist Cult horror novelist Brite’s new book offers quite a change of pace: These two aspects are enough to carry the story for me.
The book chronicles their efforts to open a restaurant–Liquor. Brite of days gone by. Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon.
Liquor (novel series) – Wikipedia
I felt so immersed with their dream, that I wanted to be able to go inside my Kindle and tasted the food myself — until I remember, as a Muslim, I don’t drink alcohol darn it! Can’t wait to read the other books she’s written with these same main lliquor. Unfortunately they all feel flat and predictable.
What really works is the description of liqkor New Orleans. She lives in New Orleans with her husband, Chris, a chef. Customers who bought this item also bought. As well as being a rich portrait of restaurant life in NOLA, the novel is part-thriller, part mystery, with these elements keeping the reader turning pages.

The perfect light, pick-me-up read. At any rate, I had a hard time putting this book down when I needed to, despite the fact that it’s wildly different from anything I’ve read in age I really enjoyed this book! With some wheeling and dealing, a slew of great recipes, and a few lucky breaks, Rickey briye G-man are soon on their liquof to opening Liquor, their very own restaurant.
The owner decided to close the place and they found themselves jobless. Brite serves up course after course of culinary passion and politics, sauteed in humor and garnished with the history of the Big Easy. Seriously, I can’t cope with how good this book is. I’d like to brlte this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle?
