Anne Rice has always been a favorite author of mine, she is my “guilty pleasure” reading and this piece in the Times is beautiful…..
“I know that New Orleans will win its fight in the end.
I was born in the city and lived there for many years. It shaped who and what I am.
Never have I experienced a place where people knew more about love, about family, about loyalty and about getting along than the people of New Orleans. It is perhaps their very gentleness that gives them their endurance. “
