While on our vacation I read "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" by Stieg Larrson (last book in the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy), then we saw the Dragon Tattoo movie in the discount theater.

If you enjoy historical fiction, I highly recommend anything by Wilbur Smith

Thanks for the additional info about Dunces! I guess I did not realize that Percy was a novelist also - I'll have to look into his works. And neat that you have a family connection to him.

I will start 2666 by Roberto Bolano today.

Reading The Last Juror, John Grisham, and wouldn't you know? I got a summons for jury duty today in the mail.

Just started We're With Nobody, an account of the kind of oppo research that goes on behind the scenes in political campaigns. The first four chapters are exceptionally well written, and interesting to someone like me.

Funny coincidence. I saw the authors on The Daily Show last week, then received a copy of the book over the weekend from my dad after he saw it while bookstore browsing.

Confederacy, Ignatius J Reilly, priceless.

Cool background Leeza and Fun.

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?
