5.0 out of 5 stars More onions, please! 20 Aug 1999
By A Customer
What a treat it was to read "Managing Ignatius" by Jerry Strahan. I had only recently been introduced to "A Confederacy Of Dunces" by John Kennedy Toole and was lucky enough to happen across a review of "Managing Ignatius" on the Internet. Of course, in a matter of days I was having trouble putting down this delightful book. I even took time to give it a meaty thumbs-up in the Waxahachie (Texas) Daily Light newspaper where I was able to even incorporate a photo my friend Liberty took when she was in the French Quarter and spied a Lucky Dogs vendor on a hot July day. For people who are interested in the human condition and the hot dog condition, "Managing Ignatius" (A great title depsite what the Baton Rouge Advocate says) is a must-have for people interested in the outrageous and that glorious city, New Orleans. -Andrew West Griffin in the Lone Star State

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Life among the lowest strata 12 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Having lived, as I did, in Detroit's Cass Corridor for a decade back in the 1980s, this book brought back all the memories of living among the absolute bottom of society. Strahan certainly had a lot of affection for his employees, and it shows in the way he dealt with them and the way he writes about them.
