In The Snare one of America's most highly acclaimed fiction writers explores the mystery of place and the mystifying duality of the human wish, with its craving for both dark and light. This is a book for readers of choice writing and for those who seek a way to express and comprehend the ineffable sense of excitement aroused by the sinister, exotic beauty of New Orleans.
