Forget Duck Dynasty and True Detective. Read Bayou Coeur and enter a world as different from the homogeneity of American life as étouffée is different from Campbell’s soup. Gray leads us through this unique culture like a skilled cajun accordionist laying down his chords and pursuing a melodic line that evokes nostalgia and mystery and resolves into surprising harmonies.

—Bill Dowie, author of critical biographies of Peter Matthiessen and James Salter in the Twayne U.S. Authors Series
