K-Doe lands on Kirkus’s Best of 2012 Nonfiction list

“Fool, shut your mouth up!”

Kirkus Reviews has named Ernie K-Doe: The R&B Emperor of New Orleans one of the top 100 nonfiction books of 2012!

Back in April, Kirkus gave K-Doe a glowing (and starred!) review, calling it a “vital, essential addition to the shelf of great books about New Orleans.” In his introduction to the annual “Best of Nonfiction” list, editor Eric Liebetrau specifically mentions K-Doe, calling it an “unexpected surprise,”  “comprehensive,” and “lavishly illustrated.”
