Publisher Description

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize
“A masterwork . . . the novel astonishes with its inventiveness . . . it is nothing less than a grand comic fugue.”—The New York Times Book Review

A Confederacy of Dunces is an American comic masterpiece. John Kennedy Toole's hero, one Ignatius J. Reilly, is "huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter. His story bursts with wholly original characters, denizens of New Orleans' lower depths, incredibly true-to-life dialogue, and the zaniest series of high and low comic adventures" (Henry Kisor, Chicago Sun-Times).

A Confederacy of Dunces

Most novelists place one or two "odd" or
"eccentric" characters in their books to add comic relief. A Confederacy of Dunces is dedicated entirely to these characters. It made for a laugh out loud reading. Jones always made me smile!

Confederacy of Dunces

Perhaps the finest book ever written

Genius

One of the best books I've ever read, and I've read many. And the sad truth about the author is yet a story unto its self.
