I’ve been following Poppy Brite’s blog docbrite. See all books by Poppy Z. Very good gay fiction about a couple who are line cooks in New Orleans and are approached by a financier interested in helping them open a restaurant. Cult horror novelist Brite’s new book offers quite a change of pace: It was a fun book.

Dec 10, Barb rated it it was amazing. Rickey and G-Man were an established Poppy Z. Fortunately, there is more to be had, as Brite has written sequels “Prime” and “Soul Kitchen”, which are equally as enjoyable. Want to Read saving…. PZB goes from writing cult teen horror novels to writing about chefs in New Orleans? G-Man, on the other hand, was the more pragmatist.

So I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Truly either a labor of love or just a tough way to make a living. Two line bite decide to open their own restaurant in New Orleans in the second book in the Rickey and G-Man series by novelist Poppy Z.


Ooh this was good! Thanks for telling us about the problem. The suspense of this one man who had it for Rickey, and trying to sabotage the plan, added the touch of action.

I definitely will read the next book still had a Kobo discount code to be used, so yay! Never mind that Anne Rice is writing about Jesus in the first person. They love and support each other, shore up the other’s weaknesses and get so busy they forget to have sex. The partnership, both business and personal, between Rickey and G-man, seems perfectly balanced, the strengths of one complementing the weaknesses of the other, and their trust and affection is perfectly portrayed.

Customers who bought this item also bought. There’s a couple more that I’ll probably read, too.

I smashed it in a day which should tell you how easy a read it is. They are amazing why haven’t I read s heard of more?!! This book encompasses drugs, murder, alcohol, sex and food, not to mention the exciting prose-style, which make up a potent cocktail well worth reading. This ties into the mystery aspect which is meant to keep tension in the story, which it does, but this is one of the weakest parts.

It would almost certainly help, though, for the reader to be interested in food and probably in New Orleans as well.

A Family for Christmas. I’ll admit to having been a fan of PZB’s gore-filled goth horrors in my angsty teen years and, whilst that familiarity is what drew me to this book initially, I feel that the author has changed, almost pop;y if she like me as a reader has grown up.


Jul 28, Abi Walton rated it really liked it Shelves: The plot and fate twists make for unique-freak takes on the New Orleans restaurant scene.

They had to apologize to their teacher and explain to their classmates that doctor visits were unlikely to result in surprise dismemberments. So yeah, reading about Liquor, Rickey, and G-Man was a nice break from the da This book was lovely, and I know that isn’t a great adjective – in fact, myriad people would be loathe to hear their work described as “lovely” – but this book really was lovely. Aliquor bases gourmet restaurant. As La Vista Turns. Brite’s seventh novel and the first of hers that I’ve readbut I’m happy to say I was wrong.

The themes of friendship, love, cooking, and the city setting are what really offer a great read. I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle? The Beauty of Death Vol.

Preview — Liquor by Poppy Z. The book mainly concerns these two, their offbeat acquaintances and the trials and tribulations of starting a business from the bottom up. The characters we meet in this curious underworld including the hilariously named critic Chase Haricot are what drives the plot, since there is relatively little structure which is not a criticism; it works well for this kind of novel.
