    Never visiting New Orleans, I have always had a fascination for

    Never visiting New Orleans, I have always had a fascination for their seafood cooking; especially Gumbo. This nonfiction book was elegantly crafted by a fellow author and poet, named Jeff Weddle. He carries the reader on a quest from the 1960s till today, explaining how the Loujon Press and its’ literary review, The Outsider came into existence. I enjoyed the introduction and acknowledgments inside of the book. Weddle is a fanatic for Charles Bukowski and I enjoyed Chapters 6 and 7 the most. When I first saw the front cover of this book, I asked myself “who are the two people and why are both pictures printed in black and white?” Then, as I completed Chapter 1, it hit me. These were the owners and founders and these pictures were taken in the 1960s. I never knew Jeff Weddle’s name was catalogued into the U.S. Library of Congress. 




    Reading the testimonials from others on the back cover made me more intrigued to see what this press was all about. Seeing the amount of quantitative data inside of this book, it was very wise for Weddle to include an Index in the back section. On a personal note, I met Jeff through Port Cities Review (operated by Mark Vanderpool, who I am also friends with). When I did some personal research on Jeff and found this nonfiction book, I was shocked. A poet transitioning to writing a book about facts! What an amazing transition! 




    The last major thing I want to point out about this book is the author remains unbiased. Many times when I read a nonfiction book, the author only explains their side of the event instead of the holistic view. I recommend this book to those who want to learn about the establishment of the Loujon Press and The Outsider. If you have never been to New Orleans or enjoy the city upon visit, this book is for you.
