Unusual and atmospheric

by Arabella on Jun 29, 2007

The author, a New York reporter, went down to Louisiana in 1959 to cover the gubernatorial re-election campaign of Earl Long, younger brother of famous former Governor Huey Long ("the kingfish," who appears thinly disguised in All the King's Men). The Northern reporter was fascinated by Southern politics and mores, and appalled by the racial situation. The book is articulate and witty, and full of the atmosphere of the Deep South.
