5.0 out of 5 stars Finally Fair and Balanced, July 18, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Butterfly in the Typewriter: The Tragic Life of John Kennedy Toole and the Remarkable Story of A Confederacy of Dunces (Hardcover)
I was one who laughed through my first reading of Confederacy of Dunces and am so glad to have read this bio before all the others. I despise the literary gossip that seems to be mostly invented to sell books. It makes me wonder what Toole would think of all this speculation on every aspect of his life put out there like it was absolute truth. That's why this book was such a great read. It gives you all the info and lets you decide how the pieces of the puzzle that was Toole fit together, if at all.
