A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole

A Confederacy of Dunces

by John Kennedy Toole

One of those books that sticks with you forever. Ignatius J. Reilly is a funny and tragic hero bumbling through New Orleans of yore. This would be a very different book written with the diagnostic perspectives we have today, but as it is it's an amazing slice of awkward life in all its glory. If you've ever felt like a misfit charging through a hilarious world, this book is for you!
