A confederacy of dunces by John Kennedy Toole( Book )
356 editions published between 1980 and 2016 in 25 languages and held by 6,723 libraries worldwide
Meet Ignatius J. Reilly, a 30-year-old medievalist who lives at home with his mother in New Orleans, and pens his magnum opus on Big Chief writing pads he keeps hidden under his bed. Considered by many a comic masterpiece that memorably evokes the city of New Orleans and whose robust protagonist is a modern-day Falstaff, Don Quixote, or Gargantua; other are not amused by a fat, flatulent, gluttonous, loud, lying, hypocritical, self-deceiving, self-centered blowhard who masturbates to memories of a dog

The first novel by the Pulizer Prize-winning author of A Confederacy Of Dunces. David is a young boy growing up in a small Southern town in the 1940s. From his porch, David can see the whole valley, including the neon Bible that lights up the sky, emblem of the God-fearing folk who snub his family because Poppa can't afford the church dues
A confederacy of dunces by John Kennedy Toole( Sound Recording )
35 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and held by 1,071 libraries worldwide
Ignatius J. Reilly of New Orleans, --selfish, domineering, deluded, tragic and larger than life-- is a noble crusader against a world of dunces. He is a modern-day Quixote beset by giants of the modern age. In magnificent revolt against the twentieth century, Ignatius propels his monstrous bulk among the flesh posts of the fallen city, documenting life on his Big Chief tablets as he goes, until his maroon-haired mother decrees that Ignatius must work

The neon bible by Terence Davies( visu )
5 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"Nach seinen konsequent autobiografischen Arbeiten verarbeitet Terence Davies erstmals eine literarische Vorlage. Die Adaption des Romans basiert freilich auf einer Seelenverwandtschaft: Wieder steht ein Kind an der Schwelle zum Erwachsensein im Mittelpunkt, wieder wird der Verlust von Unschuld durch Erfahrung beschrieben. Doch die Bilanz der in den amerikanischen Südstaaten angesiedelten Geschichte fällt wesentlich düsterer aus: Statt befreiendem Aufbruch stehen Tod und Vernichtung als einziger Ausweg. Ein intensiver und eindrucksvoller, in optischer als auch inhaltlicher Hinsicht düsterer Film." [filmdienst.de]

Ittiḥādīyahʹ-yi ablahān by John Kennedy Toole( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in Persian and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Toole's lunatic and sage novel introduces one of the most memorable characters in American literature, Ignatius Reilly, whom Walker Percy dubs "slob extraordinaire, a mad Oliver Hardy, a fat Don Quixote, a perverse Thomas Aquinas rolled into one." Set in New Orleans, A Confederacy of Dunces outswifts Swift, one of whose essays gives the book its title. As its characters burst into life, they leave the region and literature forever changed by their presence-Ignatius and his mother; Miss Trixie, the octogenarian assistant accountant at Levi Pants; inept, wan Patrolman Mancuso; Darlene, the Bourbon Street stripper with a penchant for poultry; Jones the jivecat in spaceage dark glasses
