Hmmm. As I vaguely recall, ignatius had some delusional traits. It comes from the water down here.

Funny thing about that book, Leeza. None of the commercial publishers wanted to touch it, but when it finally was published (by a university press), it won a Pulitzer. The novelist Walker Percy was the main person responsible for finally getting it printed. I keep meaning to read some of Walker Percy's books and am embarrassed I haven't. The entire Percy family of writers is intriguing (I've read some of W.A. Percy's works, years ago, and have a friend who married into that family).

Actually no - you are too FUNny...!

A gift from my UK bibliophile girlfriend...

Sad story - he committed suicide after writing only this one book, and his Mom shopped the book around until she found someone who would publish it. And I would say that there are probably a few people in the forums who have some of Ignatius' qualities, but you are not one of them...

"A Confederacy of Dunces" is set in NOLA. Did anyone in the forums prompt you to read this?

Anything by Tom Wolfe, but Bonfire of the Vanities was my favorite of all. A Man in Full a close second, there were times I had to skip pages and go back slowly to peek, so painful was it to live through the main character's neverending troubles.

finished Sedaris, now onto a book I started in the summer but lost it at my brother's house: John Grisham "The Last Jury."

We read classics too. Dan is a sci fi/ fantasy fan, and I tend more towards memoir type books which read like fiction (which is something I'm writing as well). Both of us love Stephen King. Fave authors: Him: Edgar Rice Burroughs, Stephen Donaldson, Frank Herbert, Clancy, WEB Griffith, King, and so on. Mine include: Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, Pat Conroy, Sedaris, Burroughs, Rick Bragg, Dorothy Allison, Wally Lamb and lots lots more.

I love David Sedaris' wit! His books are good but the recording of his voice reading them makes them even better. We saw him live onetime. It was such a fun evening!
