Louisiana, Armand Garreau.
Critical edition by D. A. Kress.
Thanks to this edition Armand Garreau will at last be available
to the French reading public in Louisiana. Everything about it underscores
the fact that this book will be of interest to specialists in Louisiana
history, school boards seeking material for immersion programs and
even the casual reader who simply wants to read a good book. The
riveting drama and the simplicity of the action both heighten the
interest of Garreau’s historical novel. Clearly, one of the
main points of interest of Louisiana is the mise en
scène of events that really happened and that had the
potential to radically change the destiny of the continent. The
strength of the novel resides in the clarity of the plot, creating
a passionate story that sweeps the reader along. The fact that the
leaders of the revolt were shot down near the present-day site of
the Café du Monde in New Orleans should give all of those
who love Louisiana reason to question their ideas and knowledge
of American history and to be proud of their French-American heritage.
