SALA Book Club - "A Confederacy of Dunces"
This month we're reading the Pulitzer Prize-winning A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole.
"A Confederacy of Dunces is an American comic masterpiece. John Kennedy Toole's hero, one Ignatius J. Reilly, is "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).
We have no theme or topic for what we read. Attendees each nominate a book for next month, and the final selection is made by a poll on our SALA Facebook group.
We will meet to discuss a new book on the 1st Sunday of each month. The person who nominated the winning book hosts at their home or a public location (coffee shop etc.) of their choosing.
This month Sharí will be hosting at Crave Cafe in Studio City.
