This is my first ever nomination in the MobileRead book Club. One of the funniest books ever written and winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1981. A Confederacy of Dunces
by John Kennedy Toole.
Via www.fantasticfiction.co.uk A monument to sloth, rant and contempt, and suspicious of anything modern - this is Ignatius J. Reilly of New Orleans, crusader against dunces. In revolt against the 20th century, Ignatius propels his bulk among the flesh-pots of a fallen city, documenting life on his Big Chief tablets as he goes, until his mother decrees that Ignatius must work.
