This wildly inventive comic masterpiece exploded on the literary scene like a time bomb in 1980. The rest is publishing history. Critics and readers adored A Confederacy of Dunces, and the book went on to win the Pulitzer Prize. Now this wonderfully outrageous, hilariously funny novel is back in a new hardcover edition.


Pulitzer Prize Winner A masterwork . . . the novel astonishes with its inventiveness . . . it is nothing less than a grand comic fugue. The New York Times Book Review A corker, an epic comedy, a rumbling, roaring avalanche of a book. The Washington Post An astonishingly good novel, radiant with intelligence and artful high comedy. Newsweek One of the funniest books ever written . . . it will make you laugh out loud till your belly aches and your eyes water. The New Republic The episodes explode one after the other like fireworks on a stormy night. No doubt about it, this book is destined to become a classic. The Baltimore Sun The dialogue is superbly mad. You simply sweep along, unbelievably entranced. The Boston Globe An astonishingly original and assured comic spree. New York Magazine As hilarious as it indisputably is, A Confederacy of Dunces is a serious and important work. Los Angeles Herald Examiner If a book's price is measured against the laughs it provokes, A Confederacy of Dunces is the bargain of the year. Time A brilliant and evocative novel. San Francisco Chronicle I found myself laughing out loud again and again as I read this ribald book. Christian Science Monitor Crazy magnificent once-in-a-blue-moon first novel. . . . There is a touch of genius about Toole and what he has created. Publishers Weekly A masterpiece of character comedy . . . brilliant, relentless, delicious, perhaps even classic. Kirkus Reviews Astonishing, extravagant, lunatic, satiric, and peculiar, but it is above all genuine, skillful, and unsentimentally comic. Booklist Ignatius J. Reilly is Bette Midler s favorite hero of fiction (Vanity Fair, August 2008)

    Geschreven bij A Confederacy of Dunces

    Een kruising tussen Catcher in de rye en Oblomov waarin de dikke welbespraakte hoofdpersoon door zijn kinderlijke en onaangepaste wereldbeeld van de ene in de andere onmogelijke situatie beland. De verhaallijnen van de overige personages zijn oninteressant en saai waardoor het tempo regelmatig uit het hoofdverhaal wordt gehaald.
