Jack Saux
Jack  Saux picture

Jack Saux is a New Orleans boy; a product of that incredible city, touched by all of her virtues, vices, and exuberance. Aircraft were a fascination for him from an early age, sparked by the fact that his dad and two of his brothers had flown in World War II. Saux worked as a pilot for 34 years. The first five were in the military, the remaining years were with an airline.

Clueless in New Orleans: Adventures in Adolescence

Join Dué Bonogura on his journey into that complicated, confusing, life-changing experience known as adolescence. One kiss removed him from the simple life of fishing and hanging out with his pals to the pursuit of something he absolutely did not understand. He did learn that jealousy and paranoia seemed to be an integral part of that process. But, as he was trying to sort through all of those emotions, he discovered the body of a murdered priest, his parish priest. And then the killer came after Dué. The locale is slightly north of the Gulf of Mexico and a tad south of the United States. It is in an experience we call New Orleans. If you are currently touring the planet puberty, you will look at your friends and schoolmates to see which one of them was the inspiration for Dué's character. If those years are in the past, but still in memory, Dué will make you smile. And if you have forgotten, you will remember.
