This book was great. The real life accounts of the author as he was manager of Lucky Dogs, the hotdog vending company in New Orleans' French Quarter, is amazing. The people that he describes will blow your mind, and entrance you completely. From stories of Frenchy (a huge Canadian boxer) beating everything in sight, to transvestites and homosexuals hitting on customers. The lovers spats, roberies, and assualts are all part of the charm of Lucky Dogs and what make Managing Ignatius the entertaining book it is. Put it this way: After reading Managing Ignatius I informed my parents that as soon as I arrive in New Orleans I'm headed to the Quarter for a job.
