More about this book:

Epic Bourbon Street portrays the rise of a gifted, young and penniless photographer – Aeneas Jam – who wanders Bourbon Street to capture its art. Discovered by an Uptown debutante, Aeneas transforms into a portrait photographer of New Orleans’ aristocracy despite rival suitors and reverses of Fortune. Bourbon Street is a gallery of vivid portraits of the chimeras of Aeneas. Illuminating comedy and existential contrasts blend pixels into fine prose about the quest for a better life based upon one’sdreams. Aeneas Jam’s wanderings in New Orleans are an American jazz improvisation upon Virgil’s Aeneid. Bourbon Street beckons you to the gallery of the dreams of Aeneas in the French Quarter of New Orleans.
