Praise
"There's nothing like a novel written by an author who's creatively at the top of her game, having fun with characters and a city she loves, and writing about a subject she knows well."
From the Publisher
Annotation In this follow-up to THE VALUE OF X, Poppy Z. Brite once again takes a break from her usual genre--splatterpunk horror--to explore the fiercely competitive restaurant industry. Many challenges await New Orleans lovers Rickey and G-man when the two men decide to open a restaurant in which all dishes contain a healthy dose of alcohol. Are their great concept and fabulous cooking enough to ensure that the place remains afloat, or will they be sunk by a vengeful ex-boss, a nutty neighbor, and a silent partner who refuses to shut his mouth?
Editors Note New Orleans natives Rickey and G-man are lifetime friends and down-and-out line cooks desperate to make a quick buck. When Rickey concocts the idea of opening a restaurant in their alcohol-loving hometown where every dish packs a spirited punch, they know they’re on their way to the bank. With some wheeling and dealing, a slew of great recipes, and a few lucky breaks, Rickey and G-man are soon on their way to opening Liquor, their very own restaurant. But ?rst they need to pacify a local crank who doesn’t want to see his neighborhood disturbed, sidestep Rickey’s deranged ex-boss, rein in their big-mouth silent partner before he runs amok, and stay afloat in a stew of corruption in a town well known for its bottom feeders.A manic, spicy romp through the kitchens, back alleys, dive bars, and drug deals of the country’s most sublimely ridiculous city, author Poppy Z. Brite masterfully shakes equal parts ambition, scandal, ?lé powder, cocaine, and murder, and serves Liquor straight up, with a twist.
Editors Note 2 Desperate to make a quick buck, down-and-out cooks Rickey and G-Man come up with the idea to create a theme restaurant in which every dish is loaded with an alcoholic punch.
