I read her book "The House on First Street" in 2009. I'd been to New Orleans for the first and only time in January 1997. I'm now entertaining notions of moving there. Any thoughts?

My perspective: I'm a native who was displaced by Katrina (to Houston). After about 6 months there, I would spend 95% of my time thinking about New Orleans. In a sense, I had no choice to move back. The city was calling me.

I say this not to wax poetic, but rather to point out that for many people, living in New Orleans isn't an entirely rational decision- it's a calling. If you're feeling that call I'd suggest following it to see where it goes.
