Roy Blunt Jr. writes in this exuberant , character-filled saunter through a place he has loved almost his entire life - a city "like no other place in America, and yet (or therefore) the cradle of American culture." Here we experience it all through his eyes, ears and taste buds: the architecture, music, romance (yes, sex too), historical characters and all that glorious food.
