About the Book

Ignatius J. Reilly of New Orleans, --selfish, domineering, deluded, tragic and larger than life-- is a noble crusader against a world of dunces. He is a modern-day Quixote beset by giants of the modern age. In magnificent revolt against the twentieth century, Ignatius propels his monstrous bulk among the flesh posts of the fallen city, documenting life on his Big Chief tablets as he goes, until his maroon-haired mother decrees that Ignatius must work.

Editorial Reviews

12 D- Blackstone exclusive. Soon to be a major motion picture. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize ?Barrett Whitener strikes just the right note?.??AudioFile ?A masterwork of comedy?. The novel astonishes with its inventiveness; it lives in the play of its voices. A Confederacy of Dunces is nothing less than a grand comic fugue.?? New York Times Book Review
