We are going to take a dramatic shift for this event: an American contemporary classic FUNNY novel! You read that right. ; )

After many challenging months, we hope you will appreciate this truly outlandish adventure of the one and only Ignatius J. Reilly!

"One of the funniest books ever written ..." The New Republic

"A masterwork ... the novel astonishes with its inventiveness ... it is nothing less than a grand comic fugue." New York Times Book Review

"'A Confederacy of Dunces' is an American comic masterpiece. ... Ignatius J. Reilly is ... 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." Chicago Sun Times
