I, John Kennedy Toole

Well, this one came from left field. A novelized true story? One has to wonder what more can be said in addition to Cory MacLauchlin’s superb biography but I will withhold judgment until I’ve read it. Ironically, published by Simon and Shyster (Robert Gottlieb), the very publisher that made such heavy weather of Ken’s book.

. . . and a young publisher, Kent Carroll, who separately rescued the book, then published it with verve and devotion.
