A Confederacy Of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole

spergSperg on 08/07/2008

AConfederacyOfDuncesbyJohnKennedyToole Photo One of my all-time favorite novels - featuring the one and only Ignatius J. Reilly, thirty-year old self-proclaimed genius out to reform the entire twentieth century.
The tragedy of the book is the tragedy of the author - his suicide in 1969 at the age of thirty-two, thereby denying us a potential great body of work.
If you haven't read this Pulitzer Prize ripsnorter, I highly suggest you run to your nearest book dealer and pick up a copy.

He went to school in Baton Rouge (LSU, though never stated directly), you may recall his repeatedly telling the story of his 'frightful' bus trip. It was his one and only trip out of New Orleans his entire life-until he and Myrna drive off at the end. Tulane is in New Orleans.

I LOVE this book...but it's been quite some time since
the last time I read it. If it were given to the right
director, screen writer and cast it could be a brilliant
movie...but my understanding is that for whatever
reasons, all attempts to make it a movie have been
unsuccessful... Great quiz on a great novel! Thank
