About this item
David Langlinais weaves textured, evocative tales of family and outdoorsmanship, of the human struggle to find identity in an ever-changing landscape. Duck Thief and Other Stories--set mostly in Louisiana's southern parishes--is reminiscent of Ellen Gilchrist, with stories rich in the native culture and French patois. Langlinais's voice is clear, straight-forward and seemingly effortless. Pride, race, death, mental illness, infidelity--no subject is off-limits. Cajun narratives, as well as those taking place in big-city Texas, shine a light on characters trying to find their way through the world, to make sense of situations that make no sense at all.
