John Kennedy Toole
's first novel. No where near a prequel to the Pulitzer Prize
winning A Confederacy of Dunces
, this is still a major literary work (IMHO
). The story was written when the author was still a teenager and has a teenage John Kennedy Toole
's perspective. After the success of Confederacy
, Thelma Ducoing Toole
found John's first manuscript and despite family quarrels, had it published.
The Neon Bible will unfortunately only lead you to movie reviews (Denis Leary
was perfect as Frank).
