Abstract:

"Wide Awake in the Pelican State?which mimics the title of Dinty W. Moore?s contribution to the collection?brings together twenty-one of the finest modern writers who claim Louisiana as home, having lived all or some part of their lives in the Pelican State. Each author shares the knack of telling a good story, a Louisiana tradition that dates back two hundred years to the tales told by African American griots and the stories swapped among Mississippi river workers on boats, in taverns, and around campfires." -- from the publisher.
