The accomplished and evocative first novel by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Confederacy of Dunces.

John Kennedy Toole wrote The Neon Bible for a literary contest at the age of sixteen. The manuscript was finally published twenty years after Toole's death.

The Neon Bible opens with the narrator, a young man named David, on a train, leaving the small Southern town he's grown up in for the first time. What unspools is the tender and tragic coming-of-age story of a lonely child, a story that revolves around David's unorthodox friendship with his great-aunt Mae - a former stage performer who is fiercely at odds with the conservative townspeople - and the everyday toll of living in an environment of religious fanaticism. From the opening lines of The Neon Bible, David is fully alive, naive yet sharply observant, drawing us into his world through the sure artistry of John Kennedy Toole.

Anmeldelser

«Heartfelt emotion, communicated in clean direct prose . . . a remarkable achievement.»

Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

«A powerful novel that belongs on the shelf with the works of Flannery O'Connor, Carson McCullers and Eudora Welty.»

Orlando Sentinel

«John Kennedy Toole's tender, nostalgic side is as brilliantly effective as his corrosive satire. If you liked To Kill A Mockingbird you will love The Neon Bible

Florence King

«Shockingly mature. . . . Even at sixteen, Toole knew that the way to write about complex emotions is to express them simply.»

Chicago Tribune
