Ignatius J. Reilly of New Orleans, --selfish, domineering, deluded, tragic and larger than life-- is a noble crusader against a world of dunces.

Presentación del editor: David, el protagonista de "La Biblia de neón", es un adolescente que vive en una población miserable del profundo Sur. Una Biblia de neón ilumina el cielo por las noches, y durante el día el fanatismo religioso y la malevolencia hacen estragos en la vida de los ciudadanos. El padre de David pierde su trabajo, no puede seguir pagando su contribución a la Iglesia, y esto marca el inicio de una decadencia que les convertirá en parias dentro de la pequeña comunidad. No hay muchas alegrías en la vida de David, excepto las que llegan de la mano de tía Mae, una hermana de su madre que tras una fantasmal carrera como cantante, y ya con sesenta años, escandaliza a los bienpensantes con su pelo teñido de rubio, sus vestidos de colores chillones y sus decrépitos novios. Tras una decepción amorosa y un sangriento y escalofriante episodio, el joven David se apresta a una nueva vida en otros horizontes
