Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"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-Times

Review:

"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."

New York Times Book Review

Today there are over 1.5 million copies in print worldwide in eighteen different languages.Toole s lunatic and sage novel introduces one of the most memorable characters in American literature, Ignatius Reilly, whom Walker Percy dubs slob extraordinary; a mad Oliver Hardy, a fat Don Quixote, a perverse Thomas Aquinas rolled into one -- who is in violent revolt against the entire modern age. Ignatius s ire explodes when his mother backs into an automobile. The owner of the damaged vehicle insists on payment; Mrs. Reilly demands that her son cease watching television and writing in his Big Chief tablet and get a job.Set in New Orleans, A Confederacy of Dunces outswifts Swift, one of whose essays gives the book its title.

Louisiana State University Press will celebrate the anniversary with a birthday party during the Tennessee Williams Festival in New Orleans in March 2000.John McConnell, the actor who brilliantly portrayed Ignatius in the Swine Palace stage production of A Confederacy of Dunces, will be on hand and in character to blow out the candles.
