What buyers say about A Confederacy of Dunces: A Novel
It is a great read for anyone who is a little Cal or just wants to be sure of their taste in humor but also wants to be safe and not get too much raunchy, because it is exactly the same as New Orleans at that time.
I would have just pretended I read it if it wasn't for the essay, but I actually liked it more than I thought.
The story of Dunces' creation, which was tragically young and was published more than a decade later, has been described as a modern classic and a novel that only came to light after Toole's mother found the manuscript.
I believe it was a wonderful book that came around in the 60s, I remember an uncle telling me he read it when he was 20 and thought it was wonderful. The author committed suicide after completing this book because it was refused.
Most everyone seemed to agree that it is almost always a given that someone will write a positive review for a book at one of the places I frequent on-line.
