snippet from review:

< Crescent City Rhapsody is atypical of
               most nanotech-oriented SF, which often
               presents the technology as a fait
               accompli, already fully developed and
               capable of near-magical achievements.
               Instead, Kathleen Ann Goonan draws a
               portrait of nanotech in its infancy--a
               messy hodgepodge of unrelated
               research pursued by hundreds of
               laboratories, all with differing goals and

< Additionally, Crescent City Rhapsody
               celebrates art in many forms. Music
               and sculpture, just as much as science,
               are critical elements of Marie's hopes
               and dreams for a truly liberated
               humanity. >
