A Confederacy of Dunces

by John Kennedy Toole

Ignatius J. Reilly, is a haughty, hungry human with an appetite for misadventure. Both fractious and fastidious โ€“ think Don Quixote in the French Quarter โ€“ Ignatius gets himself involved in a series of comic interludes that never result in a moral awakening of any description.

A Trouble of Fools (A Carlotta Carlyle Mystery #1)

By Linda Barnes

A private investigator named Carlotta? Unusual, perhaps, but Boston P.I. Carlotta Carlyle is every bit as feisty as Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone. If you like Kinsey, you'll enjoy Carlotta. But you kinda have to love anyone who'd list her home phone under her cat's name โ€” Thomas C. (as in Cat) Carlyle, to discourage the kind of crank calls women living alone tend to get.
