    John Kennedy Toole: A Confederacy Of Dunces

    The book contains a lot of insiders jokes for natives of The Big Easy (as meself). But overall it's a good, if sluggish read. Two things I took away from it: 1) It needed a good editor 2) The weak do not survive or prosper in the writing world

    Do you judge a book by its cover?

    New piece. Needing help with ..everything
