Abstract:

"The controversial, almost mythic Louisiana politician Huey P. Long inspired not just one but six American novels, published between 1934 and 1946. And he continues to resonate in American cultural memory, appearing in a 1995 work of historical fiction. The Kingfish in Fiction offers the first study of all six "Hueys-who-aren't-Hueys" as they strut and bluster their way across the literary page, each character with his own particular story, each towing a different authorial agenda."--Jacket.
