This wildly inventive comic masterpiece exploded on the literary scene like a time bomb in 1980. The rest is publishing history. Critics and readers adored "A Confederacy of Dunces, " and the book went on to win the Pulitzer Prize. Now this wonderfully outrageous, hilariously funny novel is back in a new hardcover edition.

AUTOR/A

TOOLE, JOHN KENNEDY

John Kennedy Toole nació en Nueva Orleans en 1937 y murió en 1969. Estudió en la Columbia University, donde obtuvo el título de máster en Inglés, y fue profesor en la University of Southwestern Louisiana y en el Dominican College de Nueva Orleans. La publicación póstuma de La conjura de los necios, aclamada unánimemente como una obra maestra, le ha acreditado como uno de los más extraordinarios novelistas norteamericanos de todos los tiempos. Tras una enmarañada situación legal, por fin se ha publicado también su primera novela, La Biblia de neón.
