Voodoo Dream (Paperback)

Regular price $22.00

"Marie Laveau is the most interesting character in American culture . . . I loved it." --Whoopi Goldberg

"An overwhelming journey navigated with skill and imagination . . . captures the dazzle and showmanship of voodoo." --Los Angeles Times

"Splendid intuition and a deft narrative style . . In her first novel, Rhodes demonstrates that she possesses as much conjuring literary ability as some of the most outstanding writers in the United States." --Houston A. Baker, Jr., African-American Review

 

The story of Marie Laveau, the character featured on American Horror Story: Coven.

New Orleans in the mid-nineteenth century: a potent mix of whites, Creoles, free blacks, and African slaves, a city pulsing with crowds, commerce, and an undercurrent of secret power. The source of this power is the voodoo religion, and its queen is Marie Laveau, the notorious voodooienne, worshipped and feared by blacks and whites alike.

Richly written, filled with vivid characters and insight into voodoo, Jewell Parker Rhodes' debut novel - published in 2000 - introduced a powerful voice in fiction.
