A Confederacy Of Dunces - John Kennedy Toole Description

Acknowledged as a leading work of 20th century fiction, A Confederacy Of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole is captivating reflection of the Southern United States in the 1950s and 60s.

Centred on the obese, grotesque Ignatius J. Reilly, who's fear of the modern world and opposition to popular culture cause lead him to a life free from responsibility, until his own mother decides that he needs employment.

What follows is a colourful tale of hot dog stands, pirate costumes and plenty of laughs as we follow the disdainful Ignatius as he heaves himself through New Orleans, in what is widely regarded as one of the best depictions of the vibrant city found in print.

This edition includes a foreword from Walker Percy, the individual who first published the novel in 1980 after significant pressure from Toole's mother, 11 years after the author's suicide that was influenced by the repeated failings to get the book published himself. It's simply a must-read!
