"A Confederacy of Dunces" - John Toole

I picked this up Friday night; any thoughts? Capsule reviews?

No one?

John Kennedy Toole won the Pultizer posthumously for it; his mother submitted it to an English professor who published it.

I have this, "Lonesome Dove" and "All the Pretty Horses" lined-up next, but wasn't sure what to start.

I've been wanting to read this for a while. I bought it a couple of months back and haven't yet got the opportunity to start it.

I don't suppose that's much help.

All the Pretty Horses is pretty damn good though.

I read about half of it, then gave it back to the friend that lent it to me.

I don't even remember what I didn't find great about it, but something didn't jive with me.

Ah, well, the issue is I have not an idea what it's about; I am one to quite often judge a book (and, yes, only books...) by its cover. IT seemed so out of my conventional literary tastes that my enterprising subconciousness couldn't resist.

Haven`t read this yet - but I read Toole`s "The Neon Bible" and it was FANTASTIC. Highly recommended.

Downed the first chapter; intriguing, interesting, and inspiring.
