Why we love this
A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole. Baton Rouge: Lousiana State University Press, 1981. First edition, seventh printing. Early printings of this American classic have become rare; this printing is in very good condition, with slight wear to jacket edges. Although this sorry tale of a struggling, self-deluded author initially failed to find a publisher, leading to Toole's early suicide, the book is now widely regarded as a bizarre, underground masterpiece. Hardcover.
