What lesser known piece of fiction, not written by yourself, should I be reading this very moment? (I exclude your own works because we should already have read everything you've published.)
Normally, I’d say William Hope Hodgson’s Carnaki series, but since I’ve already turned you on to those…
Every artist should read Allan Gurganus’s PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS. It’s a wonderful pseduo-memoir of being young and hungry and horny in the big city, and the agony of growing up.
