ISBN: 674016238; Author: Mitchell, Reid; Publisher: Harvard University Press; Format: Paperback; With this colorful study, Reid Mitchell takes us to Mardi Gras-to a yearly ritual that sweeps the richly multicultural city of New Orleans into a frenzy of parades, pageantry, dance, drunkenness, music, sexual display, and social and political bombast. In All on a Mardi Gras Day Mitchell tells us some of the most intriguing stories of Carnival since 1804. Woven into his narrative are observations of the meaning and messages of Mardi Gras-themes of unity, exclusion, and elitism course through these tales as they do through the Crescent City.
