"With the grittiness of Dashiell Hammett and the rhythms of James Ellroy, Jason Berry gives us Louisiana politics. Last of the Red Hot Poppas is a novel you won’t be able to put down." Raymond D. Strother, Falling Up: How a Redneck Helped Invent Political Consulting
"Nobody understands Louisiana politics better than Jason Berry or writes so convincingly about its corruption, color, and complexity. Last of the Red Hot Poppas had me laughing out loud and turning pages as fast as I could.” Christine Wiltz, author of The Last Madam: A Life in the New Orleans Underworld
