As a huge fan of A Confederacy of Dunces I was intrigued to read the book written by a young John Kennedy Toole.
At the same time a sad and strangely uplifting novel, it was a wonderful read and should be a book we all read at some point.
It has a digestible way of narrating a difficult and emotionally nuanced life and has a compelling writing style.
John Kennedy Toole is a favorite author of mine -- lost him way too soon. Super talented, amazing descriptive writer. Highly recommend.Published 21 hours ago by M Hill
Simply amazing composition, a fascinating story that locked me in from the opening lines. Tragedy. Highly recommended.Published 10 days ago by K. Taylor
Intriguing. Lives up to its blurbs. Sometimes, what is done in the name of religion can be heart breaking and have devastating effects on people. The author captures that vividly. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Loves Good Stories
Worth reading if you like John Kennedy Toole. Do not expect something on the level of Confederacy of Dunces.Published 3 months ago by JS
Not as great as his Confederate of Dances. But well written and worth reading. Characters were not as quirky and perhaps not as well developed. Read morePublished 3 months ago by bsommer
