My review of John Kennedy Toole's A Confederacy of Dunces, reposted from Goodreads.

I was recently reading this book in a public place, where a friend of mine ran into me. We exchanged pleasantries, and he asked me what the book was about, and I replied with “It’s pretty much Don Quixote in New Orleans.” The fact that I’ve never read Don Quixote aside, that description just doesn’t seem right. 2,251 more words
