A Confederacy of Dunces

A Confederacy of Dunces Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ignatius J. Reilly of New Orleans, --selfish, domineering, deluded, tragic and larger than life-- is a noble crusader against a world of dunces. He is a modern-day Quixote beset by giants of the modern age. In magnificent revolt against the twentieth century, Ignatius propels his monstrous bulk among the flesh posts of the fallen city, documenting life on his Big Chief tablets as he goes, until his maroon-haired mother decrees that Ignatius must work.

Synopsis:

Set in New Orleans, the protagonist is nearly arrested for being a suspicious character and encounters many unfortunate events.
