A Confederacy of Dunces.

Not far from my home is the Toole-Hecker House. This is the last residence of John Kennedy Toole, author of “A Confederacy of Dunces.” The book was released just before I started LSU and I recall the high praise it received for its rich depiction of New Orleans. Toole earned a posthumous Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1981 for it. If you have not read this literary treasure, you should. It’s hilarious!
