Ratings and Reviews 0 3 star ratings 0 reviews. I love Rickey and G-Man and will definitely read more of their adventures. A Kind of Romance. Additionally the great descriptions of the culinary world are simply fascinating. Inspired by Your Browsing History. May 5, Imprint: One of her greatest talents is her beautiful phraseology, and her brutally honest portrayal of the popppy acrid and wonderful aromas of New Orleans and its acrid and sweat-stained working people.

Never mind that Anne Rice is popph about Jesus in the first person. Two line cooks decide to open their own restaurant in New Orleans in the second book in the Rickey and G-Man series by novelist Poppy Z.

No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks! The characters are decent and memorable and the story does a good job of differentiating the large cast from each other. PZB wrote something truly unique and special with this novel I haven’t read anything else by this author but I truly fell in love with Ricky and G-Man. He self-identifies almost completely as a homosexual male rather than female, and as of has started taking testosterone injections.


Down on the Farm. This book is the first one I’ve read by Poppy Z. Get a free sample, and you’ll be hooked from page one.

But first they need to pacify a local crank who doesn’t want to see his neighborhood disturbed, sidestep Rickey’s deranged ex-boss, rein in liquot big-mouth silent partner before he runs amok, and stay afloat in a stew of corruption in a town well known for its bottom feeders. This was a quick read. A light-weight escapist good time.

At any rate, I had a hard time putting this book down when I needed to, despite the fact that it’s wildly different from anything I’ve read in poppyy I really enjoyed this book!

Like Timothy Taylor’s Stanley Parkit will be an eye-opener for anyone who has never seen what really goes on behind the scenes in a fine-dining kitchen.

The novel centers on two cooks, G-man and Rickey, who have featured in other works by Brite. Some of the characters are rather flat. Ooh this was good! It’s like A Confederacy of Dunces: A Family for Beite. The city is perhaps the best loved, most important character of the story. Overall a perfect gem of a book and even though it was the second book you wouldn’t have known, I would like to read the other books in the series but don’t know if they may ruin this one as to be this book was so perfect.

This is definitely recommended for anyone who enjoys foodie fiction, books about New Orleans, or just a good fiction read. The NOLA backdrop, characters to which you can relate, and the food-centric story are all win in my book. Fire Poppy’s puppy up on yo’ Kindle and laugh and cry in the same sentence. That was the first time they were sent to the principal’s office together.

Despite serious misgivings, and probably only due to the fact that New Orleans had worked its magic on me and that it was February, the worst month in San Francisco or just about anywhere, I decided to give it a try.
