I Met Ignatius J. Riley

I was wandering the French Quarter in New Orleans a few days ago when I stumbled onto Ignatius Riley, hero/villain of John Kennedy Toole’s A Confederacy of Dunces. We hit it off, talking about lutes, pirate costumes, Boethius, hot dog carts, the Night of Joy bar, the pants factory, his opinions on Mark Twain, and much more. If any of that is unclear, please read A Confederacy of Dunces.
