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).

Such a great book. Highly recommended and totally hilarious. Ignatius J. Reilly is one of the most memorable characters in fiction

It's always on the list of 100 greatest books ever, and it deserves it.

I agree that it's an American masterpiece. One of my favorite books of all time. I'm kind of glad they haven't made a movie out of it yet.
