Let's discover New Orleans of fictional favorite son Ignatius J. Reilly through the kind help of the blog "Ignatius' Ghost"
I know there is a lot of love for John Kennedy Toole's novel "A Confederacy of Dunces" (amazon
books) here on the blue and green, and I just had to share this link.
is a blog that sets out to find all the New Orleans landmarks that are directly or indirectly named in the novel.
A digital camera, google maps, Toole's own wonderful descriptions and a little detective work go a long way.
A great way to supplement the pictures in your head without having to board a Greyhound bus into the heart of darkness.
