This collection brings together thirty-five essays published by New Orleans native C. W. Cannon over the past ten years in such outlets as The LensThe Times-Picayune, and  The Rumpus. In his essays, Cannon utilizes his life experiences and intimate knowledge of his native city to explore the tension between New Orleans’s exceptionalism and Americanism, its identity since Katrina, and its role within the nation and South’s racial consciousness. The essays cover a variety of New Orleans-specific topics ranging from Mardi Gras, monument removals, crime, tourism, gentrification, and more, but all have something to say about New Orleans in relation to the rest of the state, region, and country.
