About the Book

A literary collection of the Louisiana experience.

Created from submissions received from Louisiana citizens throughout the world, this anthology offers an authentic diary of Louisiana, a state fractured into regions more disparate than any other in America. The ultimate insider's look, the book provides an unparalleled feel for hitherto hidden worlds inside the state. The selections--119 pieces from 109 contributors--run chronologically from dawn to dawn. Together these minutes provide a mosaic of the landscape, heritage, speech, and traditions of Louisiana, a place so often romanticized, demonized, adored, pitied, and patronized.

Contributors were asked to write one page or less about one minute, anytime, anywhere, in Louisiana. Writers selected include award-winning novelists and novice writers of all ages, including an eight-year-old girl and an 84-year-old man. Passages cast Louisiana's diverse peoples as backdrop against the action that transpires within the minute.
