Meet Ignatius J. Reilly: flatulent, eloquent and pretty much unemployable . . .
The ordinary folk of New Orleans seem to think he is unhinged as well. Ignatius ignores them as he heaves his vast bulk through the city's fleshpots in a noble crusade against vice, modernity and ignorance. But his momma has a nasty surprise in store for him. Ignatius must get a job. Undaunted, he uses his new-found employment to further his mission – and now he has a pirate costume and a hot-dog cart to do it with . . .

A remarkable oddball named Ignatius J. Reilly bursts out through the pages and his pants in this story as he bumbles through his city, leaving frustration and confusion in his wake. An extraordinary, unextraordinary man; a gem of humor and vividity, this book will remind you of someone that makes you groan and laugh simultaneously. Best read while eating a hot dog. - Matt (QBD)
