Half my reasoning for suggesting this book is selfish. I merely want to be able to reference and talk about the book with anyone and everyone. The other half of my reasoning is it is the best novel from the 20th century. The book itself was neglected by editors and publishers for years until the late John Kennedy Toole’s mother was able to get the manuscript in the right hands.
From the Levy Pants workers revolution, to Myrna Minkoff, and Ignatius’s supercilious medieval worldview, the pages will fly by and make you laugh out loud the entire time. Well deserving of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction awarded in 1981.
