Managing Ignatius: The Lunacy of Lucky Dogs and Life in New Orleans - Jerry Strahan
I read this years ago, but I still have it on my shelf, which is saying something considering how often I clean off my bookshelves and give away books I'm not likely to read again. No, it's not bloody Candide, but it wasn't supposed to be. I read; I laughed; I kept. And I may actually read it again.

Sidebar: Even having read this so long ago, I still make it a point to buy myself a Lucky Dog any time I'm in the Quarter and get the chance. They still don't taste that fabulous, but every now and then, I gotta do it for Ignatius. (I stem from a long line of crazy women, so I feel bonded to the guy)
