"A brilliant novel. . . . . Percy touches the rim of so many human mysteries"--"Harper's".Hide synopsis
Existentialism in New Orleans - the location being the only saving grace. The characters are unlikeable. There is no plot, only a glimpse into an ongoing boring life episode of a few boring people. I have no idea how this book somehow became so well-regarded as to have won a prestigious award. I resent the day I wasted reading this hoping for some exciting or meaningful ending. Spend some time reading "confederacy of dunces" for something worthwhile in the New Orleans setting.
