Abstract:

"In the summer of 1959, A.J. Liebling, veteran writer for the New Yorker, came to Louisiana to cover a series of bizarre events that began with Governor Earl K. Long's committment to a mental institution. Captivated by his subject, Liebling remained to write the fascinating yet tragic story of 'Uncle Earl's' final year in politics. First published in 1961, The Earl of Louisiana recreates a stormy era in Louisiana politics and captures the style and personality of one of the most colorful and paradoxical figures in the state's history. This updated edition of the book includes a foreword by T. Harry Williams, Pulitzer prize-winning author of Huey Long: A biography, and a new introduction by Pulitzer prize-winning critic Jonathan yardley that discusses Liebling's career and his most famous book from a twenty-first-century perspective." from back cover.
