"A rare opportunity to tour the underworld in America's most
exciting city. Frenchy is a charming tour guide who knows the city
better than anyone alive. Not to be missed." Gary Sleeper,
author of I'll Do My Own Damn Killin'
"Baby, if you enjoy fascinating stories about shy pimps coming to
New Orleans and getting into all sorts of adventures and meeting a
true cast of Southern characters, all the while having a hell of a
time and somehow living to tell the often-sordid and dangerous tale,
then you've come to the right place: Mr. New Orleans by
Frenchy Brouillette and Matthew Randazzo V. Loved it! Frenchy, you
free for a drink?" Mike Sacks of Vanity Fair
New Orleans is one seamy, steamy, exhilarating, and
captivating excursion through the netherland of the Mardi Gras
Mafia, populated with a larger than-than-life cast of history-making
misfits, none moreso than narrator Frenchy Brouilette himself. An
American original with a lifetime of fabulous misbehavior, Frenchy
tells all and, almost as an aside, fuels the fires on the JFK
assassination. Kudos and thanks to crime historian Matthew Randazzo
V for bringing forth Frenchy’s remarkable life and to Frenchy for
just being Frenchy. The most refreshing criminal memoir I’ve seen in
years.” Rick Mattix, author of The Complete Public Enemy
New Orleans is a very entertaining and accurate book written
about the New Orleans sex rackets."
the notorious "Canal Street Madame".
“Matthew Randazzo V is the foremost expert on the American Mafia
writing today. No one else could break open the secret history of
the New Orleans Family, the most mysterious crime family in American
history. Randazzo has done incredible work as a historian and as a
writer." Meyer Lansky Jr., heir to the most powerful Jewish
Mob dynasty in history.
"Mr. New Orleans is a total knockout: Take everything you
ever imagined about the sleazy good times to be had in New Orleans
-- the sleazy good times capital of America -- and quadruple it, and you have a hint of what's inside these sticky pages." Bill
Tonelli, Author of The Italian-American Reader.
it from someone who would know—Mr. New Orleans is one of the
best and most insightful books ever written about the American
underworld. Matthew Randazzo V is the bona fide real deal. When it
comes to insider knowledge and understanding of the American Mafia,
his only competition are the gangsters and FBI agents themselves. As
far as writing talent goes, Randazzo is in a league of his own. Do
yourself a favor and buy this book.” Johnny Fratto, son of
Mafia godfather Luigi Fratto and west coast correspondent for The
Howard Stern Show.
I saw Frenchy Brouillette’s mug shot on the cover of Mr. New
Orleans, I immediately had to know the story behind this handsome,
mysterious outlaw. He looked mad, bad, and dangerous to know—and Mr.
New Orleans shows that sometimes you can judge a book by its cover.”
