A brand-new novella about Poppy Z. Brite's popular characters Rickey and G-man (THE VALUE OF X. LIQUOR, PRIME, SOUL KITCHEN). Following a life-threatening assault by a waiter and the defection of one of his best cooks to a trendy new restaurant, Chef John Rickey accepts a gig catering the annual banquet for the South Louisiana branch of hunting/conservation group Ducks Unlimited. Held in the Cajun prairie town of Opelousas, this all-duck banquet mightn't seem a great opportunity for a chef to restore his wounded pride ... but the guest of honor is Rickey's childhood football hero, former New Orleans Saints quarterback Bobby Hebert. Will Rickey get the chance to cook for his idol, or will it end in chaos? Brite will deliver "D*U*C*K" in time for a 2006 publication.
