The city of New Orleans is mentioned several times in Intruder in the Dust. While Lucas is in jail, Carothers Edmonds is in a hospital there, "being operated on for gallstones" (30). It is also one of the places where the young men who hang around Jefferson's barbershop and pool hall during the week go "on weekends," to spend their money "in Memphis or New Orleans brothels" (42). And Crawford Gowrie reportedly "ran liquor" from New Orleans to Memphis after getting out of prison (161).
