First published in 1980–more than ten years after his death–John Kennedy Toole’s novel, A Confederacy of Dunces became a worldwide bestseller. Drawing upon his own journals and personal letters from “Ken,” Fletcher tells the story of their friendship in the early 1960s as well as his long association with Ken’s indomitable mother, Thelma. The volume features a number of previously unpublished personal photographs.
