What if hurricane Katrina never reached New Orleans? With this touch of alternative history as a backdrop, Brite's series featuring master chefs Rickey and G-Man takes a more ruminative turn. This time the gay duo is struggling to prepare a banquet of wild duck for the Louisiana branch of Ducks Unlimited. The real core of the book, though, is surprisingly philosophical, as Brite reflects perceptively on how we become who we are.
