A Confederacy of Dunces Hardback
Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series
A stunning clothbound edition of John Kennedy Toole's savagely funny, satirical masterpiece, designed by the acclaimed Coralie-Bickford Smith.
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... 'A pungent work of slapstick, satire and intellectual incongruities ... it is nothing less than a grand comic fugue'The New York Times
