"A green hunting cap squeezed the top of the fleshy balloon of a head. The green
earflaps, full of large ears and uncut hair and the fine bristles that grew in the ears
themselves, stuck out on either side like turn signals indicating two directions at
once." So enters one of the most memorable characters in recent American fiction.
The hero of John Kennedy Toole's incomparable, Pulitzer Prize-winning comic
classic is one Ignatius J. Reilly, "huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day
Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter. His story bursts with wholly
original characters, denizens of New Orleans' lower depths, incredibly true-to-life
dialogue, and the zaniest series of high and low comic adventuresWhat a delight,
what a roaring, rollicking, footstomping wonder this book is! I laughed until my sides
ached, and then I laughed on."Chicago Sun-Times
