Overview
Question: What do you get when you take unusual and appealing characters and put them into unusual and challenging situations? Answer: An unusually appealing book. The trumpet-playing priest at odds with the Church, The compulsive gambler who is saved from the Mob by a candy maker woman who loves him. The elderly man (the author's father, if he is to be believed) who fights an unfair traffic ticket, turning the courtroom into a circus. Oh, get this: the visit from the spirit (ghost?) of a legendary and notorious politician at a surreal luncheon meeting in Baton Rouge. Of course, some of these pieces are obviously "make believe" while the author suggests that others are true stories. The reader is challenged to decide which is which. So, you be the judge! Some pieces are humorous, others are poignant, and yet others share both qualities "Make believe" or true, the stories are original and likely to put a smile on your face. Why not give it a shot!
