Not the masterpiece that his other novel is, but an interesting early glimpse at the author. Especially for fans of "A Confederacy of Dunces"

The first novel by the Pulitzer-prize winning author of THe Confederacy of Dunces, the amazingly funny and original novel set in New Orleans. From the back cover: "John Kennedy Toole's tender, nostalgic side is as brilliantly effective as his corrosive satire. If you liked To Kill a Mockingbird you will love The Neon Bible."--Florence King.

I absolutely love this book; it is short, sweet, and heart-wrenching. I really enjoyed this more than Confederacy of Dunces and cannot believe this came from a 16-year-old.
