Review:

"The wonderfully translated selections in Creole Voices vividly capture the joy and romance of life in New Orleans; the torment of racial oppression; the fragility of human life; and the many other sad and joy-filled realities of nineteenth century Creole Louisiana." --Caryn Coss Bell, author of Revolution, Romanticism, and the Afro-Creole Protest Tradition in Louisiana [awaiting blurb from Andrei Codrescu]
