John Kennedy Toole–who won a posthumous Pulitzer Prize for his best-selling comic masterpiece A Confederacy of Dunces–wrote The Neon Bible for a literary contest at the age of sixteen.
The Neon Bible tells the story of David, a young boy growing up in a small Southern town in the 1940s. David’s voice is perfectly calibrated, disarmingly funny, sad, shrewd, gathering force from page to page with an emotional directness that never lapses into sentimentality.
Through it we share his awkward, painful, universally recognizable encounter with first love, we participate in boy evangelist Bobbie Lee Taylor’s revival, we meet the pious, bigoted townspeople.
