Who am I?
Why did Delia love this book?
New Orleans is a favorite city of mine, for its clammy claustrophobic parishes as much as its rollicking good times and extraordinary food. Scorched Grace delivers richly textured excursions into the heat and bent psyche of New Orleans, in a story led by Sister Holiday, a tattooed lesbian nun with grunge rocker vibes.
This exciting twist on noir and amateur sleuth tropes was fun, harrowing, heart-opening, and satisfying.
