This Month's Recommendation: A Confederacy of Dunces

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and selected as one of PBS's Great American Read titles, A Confederacy of Dunces is an American comic masterpiece. John Kennedy Toole's hero, one Ignatius J. Reilly, is a quixotic 30-year-old medievalist who lives at home with his mother in New Orleans.  Over the next several hundred pages, our hero stumbles from one adventure to the next as he is pushed out onto the streets in search of a job. Ignatius's path through the working world is populated by marvelous secondary characters: the stripper Darlene and her talented cockatoo; the septuagenarian secretary Miss Trixie, whose desperate attempts to retire are constantly, comically thwarted; sinister Miss Lee, proprietor of the Night of Joy nightclub; and Myrna Minkoff, the girl Ignatius loves to hate.
