Présentation de l'éditeur
Antoine's and New Orleans, Mardi Gras and gumbo, Interracial romance and family survival, civil rights and Civil War, Marines, monasteries, and brothels. Just supper talk. . . They did not know their lawyer. So, Skip and Miranda met the lawyer’s friend Val, as their guest host at Antoine’s in New Orleans in 1976. Skip had been arrested for no good reason at Mardi Gras. Skip was a black Creole and an accountant. Miranda was a Jewish nurse from Philadelphia. Was Skip arrested because his skin color clashed with hers? What kind of man was this lawyer? Would he represent a black man willingly and well? After all, he was a white Southern lawyer.
