This is New Orleans; everyone changes here.”

(From a letter from Everette Maddox
to Bob Woolf, 1978, quoted in
The New Orleans Review)

Reading Everette Maddox’s letters to Bob Woolf is fascinating but makes a man thankful for an unmade bed of my own one room over from a respectable liquor cabinet. Think I’ll have a few fingers fist of whiskey when I get home and read something cheerful like Lay Down in Darkness.
