Synopsis: In John Kennedy Toole's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel "A Confederacy of Dunces, Ignatius J. Reilly, an overweight genius misfit, winds up selling wienies for Paradise Vendors, Inc. (the fictional equivalent of Lucky Dogs) in New Orleans' French Quarter. In "Managing Ignatius", Strahan relates his amusing--and bemusing--experiences working for more than two decades with the audacious characters who comprise the actual stable of Lucky Dog vendors. 24 halftones.

From the Back Cover: "I love this book. It catches perfectly the sights, sounds, smells, and sins of the Quarter. From now on, whenever I'm asked what is the single best book to read for an introduction to the spirit of New Orleans, I'll reply, Managing Ignatius."-Stephen E. Ambrose, from his Foreword "Jerry Strahan is a storyteller in the first degree, and the tales he offers here, with much humor and affection, abound with the eclectic voices, the outlandish personalities, and the extraordinary lives of the men and women hawking hot dogs on the sidewalks of New Orleans."-Willie Morris
