Reilly, is "huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gargantua, 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" (Henry Kisor, Chicago Sun-Times).

  • Thanks Overstock.com for the speedy delivery of this book. I was able to rapidly go back to New Orleans with this mob of eccentric characters. This is an extremely entertaining read.

  • A Confederacy Of Dunces

    This book is among my top 10 favorites. I have read it four times. I ordered it for my mother who'd read it years ago and now is 84 and blind. She wanted it so that people could read it to her again when they come to visit. I still have my original first edition copy and as many times as I have loaned it out it has always come back because I am sure to track it down. It's that good a book.

  • A Confederacy of Dunces

    This book is by far one of the best southern reads ever. Confederacy of Dunces is the only book that I have ever read that made me laugh out loud. Ignatius is a loveable, obnoxiously intelligent slob that never bores the reader for one second, and the rest of the characters only add fuel to this bonfire of comedy. The only draw back to the fun is the ending. The ending gives one the feeling that it was hurridly completed by someone other than the original author. Hmmmm... I'm waiting for a film version. Too bad John Candy is no longer with us. He would have been excellent as the main character. Please. Read this book. You will enjoy it.

  • One of the best books I have ever read. I revisited this book 3 times since I purchased it. Brilliant comedy of errors, ego and the undefinable
