The Earl of Louisiana by A.J. Liebling
Originally this book was a three-part profile in The New Yorker. It's a breezy portrait of the last 15 months of Earl Long's lusty career. Liebling believes that Governor Earl Long, brother of the flamboyant Huey, ranks as one of the last backwoods realists in American provincial politics and that he deserves more credit than blame.
