In this study, Reid Mitchell takes the reader to Mardi Gras - a yearly ritual that sweeps the multicultural city of New Orleans into a frenzy of parardes, pageantry, dance, drunkeness, music, sexual display, and social and political bombast. It tells some of the most intriguing stories of Carnival since 1804. Woven into Mitchell's narrative are observations of the meaning and messages of Mardi Gras - themes of unity, exclusion, and elitism course through these tales as they do through the Crescent City of New Orleans.
