A Confederacy of Dunces

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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).

Customer Reviews

With charm beware

I submit to you the warmth of a book lightened in heavy words for the mind to ponder. A joyful read for the local being, and a sound explanation of crazy vs. sane. We may view ourselves as casual minds and normal dependencies, However Igneous lives in his own world that collides with ours. The twist of what is normal, and what is for scene as being normal variably gives us a new understanding that some of us are just plain different. Please don't turn a blind eye to those that are different, but rather embrace them as a new path of thinking and your mind will open new doors of thinking. db
