John Kennedy Toole: the omega point

by Joe Sanford

John Kennedy Toole: the omega point traces the roots of Mr. Tooles old-line, New Orleans family with a narrative woven neatly through interviews with associates of the author and scholars seeking the truth to his life story.  Representational photography, legacy format production, rare historical films, newsreels, a custom score and traditional New Orleans music combine to give the story a unique dimension, a combination that peels back the layers of the riddle that is New Orleans, the mystery that lies at the center of the author’s life.
