I expect you have all read ” A Confederacy of Dunces’ by John Kennedy Toole ,in which you won’t need to attend Jacob’s series of discussions about it ,during his 3month residency in New Orleans .
Yes as I type this ( after watching something equally high-brow…repeats of ‘The Job Lot’ ) he is jetting his way over there .
in case you are wondering …
no I haven’t read it ( never even heard of it until Jacob told us his good news )
I have bought it .In fact I gave it to John for a birthday present , so at long last he can put his Screw-Fix catalogue down and pick up something worth reading ( or not )
