Books by people I know

Technically, John Anderson isn’t someone I know, since I’ve never actually met or spoken with him. But he’s the cousin of my buddy Michael Croft, and that’s close enough for me. His book is called Follow the Money, and it’s about the migration of Texas politics to Washington, DC, after the election of George W. Bush. It got a nice review in the Statesman over the weekend, and for those of you in Austin, he’s going to be at Book People tonight (details here). Check it out.

Someone I definitely do know personally is New Orleans food writer Pableaux Johnson, though I knew him as Paul Johnson back when we were both students at Trinity. His book is called ESPN Gameday Gourmet, and according to the Houston Press, it sounds like the sort of recipes I could get my head around. If you like this sort of thing, then this is probably the sort of thing that you’ll like.

    Pableaux also wrote a great book entitled “Eating New Orleans” which is part restaraunt reviews, part geography lesseon, part history lesson. It is an entertaining read for anyone considering going to New Orleans even if some of the places he wrote about have not reopened after Katrina.

    John says “thanks!” I’ll be very interested to hear how his reading goes and if any bloggers who’ve seen this come talk to him.

    We got our copy yesterday, and now I have to wait until Ginger is done with it. 🙂
