To Ignatious With Love: A Culinary Tribute To: A Confederacy Of Dunces

John Kennedy Toole’s novel A Confederacy of Dunces is internationally
revered for having captured the essence and eccentricity of New Orleans —
and for introducing readers to its larger-than-life protagonist, Ignatius
J. Reilly. On this week’s show, we take a culinary look between the pages
of the book that, 37 years ago, was posthumously awarded the Pulitzer Prize
for fiction. We begin with Spud McConnell, well known for his portrayal of
Ignatius on stage.
