A Confederacy of Dunces

By John Kennedy Toole & Walker Percy
A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole & Walker Percy digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

A Confederacy of Dunces is an American comic masterpiece. John Kennedy Toole’s hero is one Ignatius J. Reilly, “huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, and a latter-day Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter. His story bursts with wholly original character, 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)

“3.9/5 This is my second Pulitzer Prize winner/finalist and all I can really say is that it kept me entertained. While the main character himself was infuriating to read about, the story and characters around him made it a pleasant read throughout. It never really felt like the story was going anywhere, however I believe that was kind of the point, it was a mix of crazy events that somehow games together in the end.”
