This is my favorite book. I usually enjoy Barrett Whitener's reading, but in "Dunces," he delivers a disappointing product. The book is so dependent on the dialects of New Orleans (my hometown), and Whitener mimics them badly. Somebody should have done some research: in N.O., Chartres Street is pronounced "CHAWT-uhs," not "shart." Next time, get a native New Orleanian to read it.
