Considered by most to be completely unhinged, Ignatius tours the fleshpots of New Orleans in order to preach his moral message. But when his momma insists that he gets a job, he uses his new-found employment to further his mission – and now he has a pirate costume and a hot-dog cart to do it with.

Description

ONE OF THE BBC’S 100 NOVELS THAT SHAPED OUR WORLD

‘This is probably my favourite book of all time’ Billy Connolly

A pithy, laugh-out-loud story following John Kennedy Toole’s larger-than-life Ignatius J. Reilly, floundering his way through 1960s New Orleans, beautifully resigned with cover art by Gary Taxali
_____________

‘This city is famous for its gamblers, prostitutes, exhibitionists, anti-Christs, alcoholics, sodomites, drug addicts, fetishists, onanists, pornographers, frauds, jades, litterbugs, and lesbians . . . don’t make the mistake of bothering me.’

Ignatius J. Reilly: fat, flatulent, eloquent and almost unemployable. By the standards of ordinary folk he is pretty much unhinged, too. But is he bothered by this?

No. For this misanthropic crusader against an America fallen into vice and ignorance has a mission: to rescue a naked female philosopher in distress. And he has a pirate costume and hot-dog cart to do it with . . .
_____________

‘I succumbed, stunned and seduced, page after page, vocal with delight. A masterwork of comedy’ New York Times

‘A fine funny novel. This is the kind of book one wants to keep quoting from’ Anthony Burgess
