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
