Overview

"Everyone who crosses into the city limits should be required to buy a copy of Yat Wit on the spot because they'll never 'get it' about the workings of this little wonderland on the bayou without one."
-Bob "Oldie King" Walker, New Orleans disc jockey

"Yeah, you rite! This girl writes about her love of New Orleans with true love and so much affection! She's a real 'Who Dat' who knows this truly unique community from the Audubon Zoo to Zulu's coconuts. It reminds me of so many reasons why we refused to let Katrina drive us away."
-Jerry Romig, New Orleans Saints announcer

"Yvonne Perret is like the French Quarter . . . the high ground-smart, clever, and tells it like it is."
-Vince Vance, Vince Vance & the Valiants

From the dilemma of deciding who gets the third beignet to dodging unyielding streetcars and suggestions for recycling Mardi Gras beads, this collection of humorous vignettes celebrates the quirks and perks of living in New Orleans. The book includes such topics as the life lessons learned from a crawfish boil and the proper etiquette for eating a po' boy and poaching ladders during parade season. Locals-and those who just love the city-will laugh out loud at Yvonne Spear Perret's charm, which is cleverly crafted into each essay.

A native New Orleanian, Yvonne Spear Perret is a former teacher and interim principal of Isidore Newman School, where she was once honored as the Teacher of the Year. In addition to formerly serving as an editor of New Orleans Wedding Guide, she has written for such publications as Disney FamilyFun, USA Today, the Christian Science Monitor, the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Gambit, and New Orleans Magazine. She graduated magna cum laude from Tulane University, with a B.A. in English and mathematics. She resides in Metairie, Louisiana.

    Highly recommended! So easy and fun to read!

    What a perfect blend of humor and true New Orleans knowledge. Perret obviously loves this city, and it's quirks. Even if you aren't from New Orleans, you'll enjoy reading these quick stories. If you've ever been there, you'll love remembering how truly wonderful it is.
