Piltdownlad #2 – Women Got Me Drinking
Set in New Orleans during the early 90s, this is the story of my time as a hapless souvenir hawker in the French Quarter after I got a crush on the pen cart girl and my feeble attempt to woo her. Along the way, I describe wandering through French Quarter streets and a few of my numerous misadventures with bums, fast-talking cashiers, gutterpunks, poolhall sharks, prostitutes and my rabble-rousing neighbor. All part of my New Orleans experience.
