Description

“I read this book reluctantly, on the recommendation of a friend, the central character is appalling!! but wonderfully so. I’m glad I stuck with it. You should too…” Ann

A monument to sloth, rant and contempt, a behemoth of fat, flatulence and furious suspicion of anything modern – this is Ignatius J. Reilly of New Orleans, noble crusader against a world of dunces.

The ordinary folk of New Orleans seem to think he is unhinged. Ignatius ignores them, heaving his vast bulk through the city’s fleshpots in a noble crusade against vice, modernity and ignorance. But his momma has a nasty surprise in store for him: Ignatius must get a job.

Undaunted, he uses his new-found employment to further his mission – and now he has a pirate costume and a hot-dog cart to do it with… Never published during his lifetime, John Kennedy Toole’s hilarious satire, A Confederacy of Dunces is a Don Quixote for the modern age.
