Editorial Reviews

Review

“As the youngest brother and son of a father whom I respected, feared, and idolized, I know well the rights of passage Blaine writes about: We don’t really become men in our fathers eyes UNTIL we buck them and go our own way. Hard, scary and at times unfair, it works. Blaine Lourd tells a personal story that a lot of sons and little brothers know well. A story that a lot of us wouldn't be where we are today without." (Matthew McConaughey )

“With affection and sympathy for his father, his mother, and the ways of the South…[Blaine Lourd] writes with…plenty of heart and intelligence.” (Kirkus Reviews)

"[A] sensitive and funny memoir...Lourd effectively recalls the halcyon days of a man who proudly defined himself as a 'coonass'." (Publisher's Weekly)

“A corker of a tale about growing up in Cajun country…thoroughly engrossing.” (People Magazine)

This witty, evocative memoir puts a vivid Southern spin on the classic rags-to-riches tale. Lourd recalls his Louisiana upbringing and life with his father, “Puffer,” a magnetic, engaging salesman who helps the author find himself. (Entertainment Weekly)

"An inspiring read for just about anyone." (Goop.com)

About the Author
