A Confederacy of Dunces, Paperback
4 out of 5 (2 ratings)


The ordinary folk of New Orleans seem to think he is unhinged as well.

Ignatius ignores them as he heaves 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.

A brutally funny romp that skewers the overly indulgently and over-educated, with a thoroughly odious hero you can't help but root for.

Review by

I don't adore this book the way some people do, but it's okay. I think my main problem with it is with the fact that the main character gets on my nerves. Also, I do not find "whacky realism" all that enthralling, nor the satire all that funny.
