Ignatius J. Reilly is a 30-year-old self-proclaimed genius out to reform the entire 20th century, which doesn't leave him time for an ordinary nine-to-five job. Then one day Mrs. Reilly pushes her reluctant son out of the nest and into the working world of New Orleans--a decision with unforeseeable hilarious results. Abridged.
"What a delight, what a roaring, rollicking, footstomping wonder this book is! I laughed until my sides ached, and then I laughed on....[Ignatious J. Reilly is] huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gragantua, 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-TimesReview:
"A masterwork of comedy.... The novel astonishes with its inventiveness, it lives in the pay of its voices. 'A Confederacy of Dunces' is nothing less that a grand comic fugue."
