Quaint Essential New Orleans

By Kevin J. Bozant

Travel | Paperback


If you write about New Orleans, get it right about New Orleans. In Quaint Essential New Orleans, Kevin J. Bozant takes you on an entertaining and personal journey through the Crescent City’s culture of unique iconography, creative geography and mystifying terminology. He offers readers a generous serving from the colloquial melting pot with ingredients borrowed from the French, Spanish, Creoles, African Americans, Cajuns, West Indians, Irish, Italians, Germans, American Indians, Canadians, Vietnamese and a smattering of Yat mixed in just to make your mom-n-em happy. The resulting mélange of creative and colorful references for streets, food, Mardi Gras, jazz, local characters, geography, history and culture, blends into a delicious gumbo of grammar which is often mispronounced, misinterpreted, misunderstood, and misspelled. Do you know the difference between, Mardi Gras and Carnival, Storyland and Storyville, roux and rue? Can you give directions to Dead Man’s Curve, Monkey Wrench Corner or Pigeon Town? Can you name the Emperor of the World, the Voodoo Queen or the Chicken King? Do you know what it means to mispronounce New Orleans, banquette, Tchefuncte, flambeaux, Tchoupitoulas or lagniappe? If you are producing a movie or documentary in New Orleans. If you are writing or anchoring a local newscast. If you are editing a city newspaper, magazine or website. If you are writing a television series set in the Crescent City. If your next novel is about New Orleans. You Need This Book!
