A Confederacy of Dunces
Mine too. When I read that book I can't believe how great it is. I literally LOL when reading it and can so easily see every character. My wife is in an MFA writing program and I got her to read it - blew her away too. Truly an amazing book. The protagonist is such a gross prick. I love how he jerks off while thinking about his old dead dog. I picture him like Comic Book Guy.
Of course the story of how the book came to be published is equally amazing.
Anyone who likes to read at all and hasn't read this yet must pick it up.
Read it years ago and loved it. I think I'll dig it out and reread it. I almost forgot how funny it is.
Honestly, it never did much for me... part of its attraction for many people I think is the story behind it. To me it's not bad but nothing breathtakingly outstanding.... though a very interesting read because of the actions of the mind behind it.
