TOOLE, John Kennedy.
A Confederacy of Dunces.
Foreword by Walker Percy.
First edition, first printing, with the publishers’ printed slip and covering letter to reviewers. “In his posthumously published novel A Confederacy of Dunces (1980), Toole mocked everything to do with his region, the South and his hometown of New Orleans, making his hero, Ignatius Reilly, sound sometimes like a Southern traditionalist on speed” (Richard Gray, A Brief History of American Literature, 2011, p. 335)
