What other readers are saying about this title:
Bookman said:
Toole killed himself after this book wasn’t picked up for the first time he sent it out to publishers. I believe it was published posthumously by the family or something. (Same thing goes for the book he wrote when he was like sixteen, called The Neon Bible.) However, this is a great novel. The only reason publishers were afraid to take it was because there is a lot of what would seem is making fun of the people of the southern states (I think this is based somewhere around the same place Mardi Gras is held.) Either way, Ignatius Reilly is the main protagonist of the story, and he is likened to Shakespeare’s Falstaff, a character who is always trying to get out of the hard work of life. It’s really good. 8/10.
