About the Author

Emily Epstein Landau lives in Washington, D.C., with her family.

Reviews

Historians of race, gender, and sexuality will learn much from Landau's explanation of how vice precincts such as Storyville reinforced the patriarchal and racial logic of segregation, and challenged it in the most subversive (and intimate) of ways.--Journal of American History
Landau's book is successful in breaking down myths about the city's history under Jim Crow while at the same time illuminating the differences between New Orleans and other southern cities.--Journal of the History of Sexuality
