Note
"For decades, master raconteur Jim Bradshaw has regaled Louisiana readers with the witty, wistful, and weird in his weekly column, "C'est Vrai". Collected here for the first time are stories about the characters of politics, poetry, buiness, show biz, and sports, along with the criminals, eccentrics, soldiers, and more. A fistfight with Huey P. Long, how the name "Breaux" got its "x", a bootlegging priest--these anecdotes and more unfold with a deft touch and a light heart. Bradshaw's charming take on all things Louisiana is a quirky romp through colorful characters and strage sights, highlighing the rich history, culture, and distinct flavor of Cajun country." -- Back cover
