Overview

Read the Real Louisiana

"I have those flying dreams—cruising low over the ground. In Louisiana in Words I can finally hear the voices that rise from the land. Joshua Clark has tapped into the soul songs of Louisiana."
—Judy Conner, humorist and author of Southern Fried Divorce

"A clever, revealing, earthy collection, as spicy as Louisiana home cooking, this book is a must for lovers of unquestionably the most hilarious and unselfconscious state in the union."
—Ken Wells, author of Meely LaBauve

"Louisiana in Words is a Book of Hours for a place that's more like a religion than a state. Witness within the worshipful attention to sunrise and sunset, the madness of LSU football on Saturday, and the calm of Ash Wednesday on St. Charles Avenue. From Caddo Parish way down to Plaquemines, Louisiana is like no other state in the union, and Louisiana in Words offers up minute-by-minute proof of that fact."
—Josh Russell, author of Yellow Jack

Although there have been plenty of "day in the life" picture books, never before has a book sought to capture a single day in a state with words like this. Created from submissions received from the world over, this anthology offers an authentic diary of Louisiana. One hundred twenty nonfiction selections from known and unknown writers run chronologically from dawn to dawn, each one minute in time. From Tallulah to Thibodaux, Shreveport to St. Martinville, New Iberia to New Orleans, together these minutes provide a mosaic of the landscape, heritage, speech, and traditions of Louisiana unlike anything before them.

Joshua Clark, founder of Light of New Orleans Publishing, edited French Quarter Fiction and other books, and his writing appears in many newspapers and magazines.
