For March the Book Club is reading A Confederacy of Dunces: A Novel by John Kennedy Toole.
This Pulitzer Prize winning novel was originally published in the early 1980s, but the “tragi-comedy” is sure to amuse readers in 2009. Library Journal describes the protagonist as a “modern day… Don Quixote… [who is a] fat, flatulent, gluttonous, loud, lying, hypocritical, self-deceiving, self-centered blowhard who masturbates to memories of a dog and pretends to profundity when he is only full of beans.” Sounds like fun!
We will meet on Thursday, March 12, 2009 in the Seminar Room (2nd floor, room 209) of Gleeson Library from 12 noon – 1 pm. Bring your lunch, friends, professors, students, colleagues… and anyone else in the USF Community to join us.
If you want to get the book through the library, you can request it through Link+ (Gleeson’s 2 copies are checked out). Your book will come in about 4 business days and will be available for pick-up at the Circulation Desk of Gleeson Library.
