A La Nouvelle-Orleans
by Jerome Mark Antil
Cajun French Acadiana and Creole blend beautifully in this heartfelt mystery drama recipe about jazz, dancing in an alley off Frenchman Street and of friendship. You've never met characters like you'll meet here.
Adventures of Peck Finch does for Acadiana what Tennessee Williams did for streetcars (Streetcar Named Desire) or Truman Capote did for Tiffany's (Breakfast at Tiffany?s).
This is a novel about a lot of things, including crime, sex, life and death. But most of all it's a novel about hope and about love. A dramatic and insightful glimpse into the special world of today's Louisiana French Acadians, whose early tragic history was immortalized by Longfellow?s Evangeline.
Jerome Mark Antil?s Hemingway-like brushes of life and death paint a canvas of a Cajun French Forrest Gump as seen through the ?shades? of the Big Easy.
