From Jonathan Yardley in the Washington Post "Engaging...delightful ... Wolf returns to the Big Easy after a protracted Yankee education at Exeter and Yale, joins his father's firm in the cotton trade, takes up lodgings on Burgundy Street at the edge of the French Quarter and hangs out at places the mere mention of which sends shivers of pleasure down my spine."

Reminiscent of This Boy's Life, Peter Wolf's true saga of family burden and escaping the ties that bind takes us from the South to New England and to Paris and back. From growing up Jewish in a wealthy New Orleans family led a cold military father, to later life as a successful author and architect, Peter Wolf tells a story of love and sacrifice, of having to leave your roots to discover them. Set against the events of the Fifties to the present, My New Orleans is as rich in cultural history as it is in individuality.
