Reviews

"A boozy, beautiful fever dream of a book that deftly articulates questions of accountability, privilege, and grief. Watching this narrator stumble through one messy magical night was a wise reminder of how impossible it is to outrun yourself." - Melissa Febos, author of Whip Smart and Abandon Me

"Last Call on Decatur Street is an atmospheric novel that brings readers right into its world--probing, celebrating, and sometimes puncturing the mythologies that surround the French Quarter of New Orleans. In a novel about relationships, family, and place, told from the perspective of its real and messy protagonist, Iris Martin Cohen grapples thoughtfully with the rifts between people--both the ones that might be mended, and the ones that might not." - Lydia Kiesling, author of The Golden State

"Sexy, smart and completely engrossing, Last Call on Decatur Street is the epic story of one woman's all-night journey into adulthood. This is on one level a never-ending drunken party, on another a mediation on class, race, and friendship, but, above all, Cohen has written a beautiful and complex love letter to New Orleans." - Madeline Stevens, Author of Devotion

"Last Call on Decatur Street is a gorgeous book about how we are shaped by the people we know--over the course of a childhood, a lifetime, and even a single night. It shines a loving light on New Orleans' thorny beauty, and gives us a glamorous and gritty close-up of those extravagant and emotional adventures that can only happen when the sun goes down." - Natalka Burian, author of Daughters of the Wild
