New Orleans, the great city at the mouth of the Mississippi is one of the most colorful, most cosmopolitan and most European of American cities. Though very few people in the city now speak or understand much French, New Orleans prides itself on its French heritage. The historic center of the city is known as the French Quarter, and the city is famous across the United States for its restaurants and its "Mardi Gras" celebrations

Mr. Laborde is very knowledgeable of Mardi Gras. He certainly did his homework concerning information on the founders of Comus.

Great quick overview of carnival history in New Orleans. Errol Laborde has an easy going, easy reading style that makes anything he writes enjoyable. If you've never been to Mardi Gras, this is a must read to get the historical scoop on what you are about to see, the difference between Comus and Momus, why coconuts are so sought after and why just after Christmas, purple, green and gold are as important in the Crescent City as red, white and blue. Highly recommended.

Laborde is a true authority on his topic. A respected community figure, editor of New Orleans magazine and others, a PhD from UNO with a dissertation on the parades, and the author of five other books on Mardi Gras. His writing style is clear, accessible, and easy to follow.

The subject matter is absolutely fascinating and full of shocking plot turns. He focuses on the first sixty years of Carnival, from the 1850s and Comus until the founding of Zulu in 1908. Who would have thought -- the first king of carnival was Jewish and a New Yorker? There is murder, war, an archduke, and lots more. Amazing. Along the way, Laborde disproves some of the conventional wisdom and legends about Mardi Gras roots.

My only issue with the book is the bizarre attempt to locate Carnival as an American tradition more than French one.
