Talk about books. I hung on to A Confederacy of Dunces's every word. Then I went on to read (though superficially) the Selected Journals of Henry David Thoreau. I liked both. Toole's A Confederacy of Dunces book nearly got dismissed by a publisher, reluctant at first to aquiesce to Toole's mother's determination in wanting her son's manuscript, all he'd die for (he actually did), published. You know what tender loving & caring mothers do for their cherished sons. Hurray for his mother. Hurray for Toole's artistically writing such a good novel.
 With little gusto I came to read that other book of his, Walden and Other Writings of Henry David Thoreau. It may take me more than a dozen sittings to consciously understand it. All books, gifts from my former New Jersey, happily married girl friend. She returned to her good ole, all-American husband yonder in Texas.
