The green earflaps, full of large ears and uncut hair and the fine bristles that grew in the ears themselves, stuck out on either side like turn signals indicating two directions at once. So enters one of the most memorable characters in recent American fiction. The hero of John Kennedy Toole's incomparable, Pultizer Prize-winning comic classic is one Ignatius J. Reilly: "huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter. His story bursts with wholly original characters, denizens of New Orleans' lower depths, incredibly true-to-life dialogue, and the zaniest series of high and low comic adventures."(Henry Kisor, Chicago Sun-Times), Anecdotes., Audiobooks., Award Winners., CD FIC TOOLE, Compact discs., DLCDLCDLCTnLvILS, Digital content provided by hoopla., Electronic books., FIC TOOLE, FIC019000, FICTION / Literary, Fiction., Grove Press ed., Humorous fiction., Humorous stories., Ignatius J. Reilly of New Orleans, --selfish, domineering, deluded, tragic and larger than life-- is a noble crusader against a world of dunces. He is a modern-day Quixote beset by giants of the modern age. In magnificent revolt against the twentieth century, Ignatius propels his monstrous bulk among the flesh posts of the fallen city, documenting life on his Big Chief tablets as he goes, until his maroon-haired mother decrees that Ignatius must work., Ignatius Reilly, a 30-year-old underachiever, spends his days crafting a never-ending book on comparative history while living off his mother's meager wages. When his mother crashes her car while intoxicated, however, Ignatius goes in search of gainful employment. As he moves from job to job attempting to succeed in the real world, his distinct experiences unfold with hilarity., JBLengJBLOCLBAKERMR0OCLCQBTCTAOCLCGVIATEFFHPIMFMNFBLACPOCLCQOCLCFOCLCOOCLCAOCLOCLCOVP@BYV, Louisiana, MWT10027830, MWT11778860, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Mothers and sons, Mothers and sons., New Orleans (La.), New York :Grove Press ;[Berkeley, Calif.] :Distributed by Publishers Group West,[1987], Originally published: Louisiana : LSU Press, 1980., PS3570.O54C66 1987, PS3570.O54C66 1997ab, Percy, Walker,1916-, Pulitzer Prize, 1981, Read by Barrett Whitener., Set in New Orleans, the protagonist is nearly arrested for being a suspicious character and encounters many unfortunate events., Toole, John Kennedy,1937-1969., Unabridged., Whitener, Barrett,1960-, Whitener, Barrett,1960-|Narrator, Young men, Young men., Z1978Blackstone Audiobooks, ZE1978Blackstone Audiobooks, [Ashland, Ore.] :Blackstone Audiobooks,p1997., [United States]:Blackstone Audio, Inc.,2007., [United States]:Grove/Atlantic, Inc.,2007., acpl1cd, computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, eBook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/bsa_9781433287695_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/csp_9780802197627_180.jpeg, ix, 394 p. ;21 cm., n-us-la, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, text file, texttxt
