"Mr. New Orleans
is a rollicking, disturbing ride through the underbelly of a
bygone New Orleans, lined with moments of dark, side-splitting
hilarity. If you're a fan of James Lee Burke, drop what you're
reading and pick this one up. In an era when popular wisdom tells us T.V. has stolen all depth from the literary true-crime narrative,
Matthew Randazzo has found a way to beat that trend mightily; he's
gone straight to the source and captured the singular, confounding
voice of the New Orleans' mafia's top political fixer with
fast-paced, riveting prose and a fine journalist's eye for detail." Christopher Rice,
New York Times Bestselling author of The Snow Garden
and Blind Fall.
Mr. New Orleans
named a New Orleans Times-Picayune
"GAMBIT PICKS" selection by The Gambit.
Mr. New Orleans
called him "the Keith Richards of the American Mafia," and
JFK hero Jim Garrison denounced him as, "one of the most
notorious vice operators in the history of New Orleans" ...
but you can just call Frenchy Brouillette MR. NEW ORLEANS.
Matthew Randazzo V's cult classic MR. NEW ORLEANS
is a hilarious and shocking guided tour through Cajun gangster
Frenchy Brouillette's 50-year sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll
bender in the New Orleans Mafia. Arriving in New Orleans as a
17-year-old runaway on a stolen Harley Davidson, Frenchy made
tens of millions and lived a glamorous life as a vice rackets
operator for New Orleans godfather Carlos Marcello and a
political fixer for his cousin, four-term Louisiana Governor
A protege of notorious madam Norma Wallace and a casual
acquaintance of Lee Harvey Oswald's, Frenchy earned his
1700-page FBI file and exorbitant list of indictments and
prison sentences. MR. NEW ORLEANS is the first
book to break the code of secrecy in the New Orleans Mafia
Family, sharing the shocking true story of America's oldest
and most mysterious crime family … and revealing their
potential involvement in the Kennedy Assassination.
A legendarily charismatic and funny storyteller, Frenchy would
become a beloved New Orleans street institution before his
tragic murder at the age of 79 in 2015. His hilarious memoir
lives on as the definitive street history of 20th century New
Orleans and a tribute to Golden Age Big Easy culture.
