Raunchiest wordplay…

10 Nov

I reviewed Gary Krist’s EMPIRE OF SIN and Michael Ross’ THE GREAT NEW ORLEANS KIDNAPPING at WSJ Books.

The reviewer became the reviewed in the comments section, where one reader made the best observation of my work that I’ve ever seen:

‘Surely <<animating idle fingers with the morally dissolute music seminally called “jass.”>> is the raunchiest wordplay yet published in a family newspaper!’

That’s epitaph material.

A random raunchy New Orleans image to go with it:
