How’s your blood pressure?

“Everybody romanticized their youth, no matter where they’re from.”

In this video, Blaine Lourd discusses his book Born on the Bayou, describing the rise and fall of the southern oil business, the impact his father had on his childhood, and what it means to always be a Louisianian.

I’ve watched this thing four times, and I can’t stop wondering where my blood pressure would be lowest.

Born on the Bayou is scheduled for an August release.
