|If you write about New Orleans, get it right about New Orleans. In Quaint Essential New Orleans, Kevin J. Bozant takes you on an entertaining and personal journey through the Crescent City's culture of unique icography, creative geography and mystifying termilogy. He offers readers a generous serving from the colloquial melting pot with ingredients borrowed from the French, Spanish, Creoles, African Americans, Cajuns, West Indians, Irish, Italians, Germans, American Indians, Canadians, Vietnamese and a smattering of Yat mixed in just to make your mom-n-em happy. The resulting melange of creative and colorful references for streets, food, Mardi Gras, jazz, local characters, geography, history and culture, blends into a delicious gumbo of grammar which is often misprounced, misinterpreted, misunderstood, and misspelled. Do you kw the difference between, Mardi Gras and Carnival, Storyland and Storyville, roux and rue? Can you give directions to Dead Man's Curve, Monkey Wrench Corner or Pigeon Town? Can you name the Emperor of the World, the Voodoo Queen or the Chicken King? Do you kw what it means to misprounce New Orleans, banquette, Tchefuncte, flambeaux, Tchoupitoulas or lagniappe?
