I'm eagerly awiting the arrival of "We Live Inside You" by Jeremy Robert Johnson - anyone read this one yet?

Genre is transgressive/bizarro.

"The line between art and madness is vapor-thin, and the worms are always hungry…"

Also "Angel Dust Apocalypse" by the same author. Synopsis:

"Meth-heads, man-made monsters, and murderous Neo-Nazis. Blissed out club kids dying at the speed of sound. The un-dead and the very soon-to-be-dead. They're all here, trying to claw their way free. From the radioactive streets of a war-scarred future, where the nuclear bombs have become self-aware, to the fallow fields of Nebraska where the kids are mainlining lightning bugs, this is a world both alien and intensely human. This is a place where self-discovery involves scalpels and horse tranquilizers; where the doctors are more doped-up than the patients; where obsessive-compulsive acid-freaks have unlocked the gateway to God and can't close the door. This is not a safe place. You can turn back now, or you can head straight into the heart of. the Angel Dust Apocalypse."

I love finding new gems.

My Year of Rest and Relaxation is the female American Psycho to the point that it has to be intentional. rich, disaffected, benzo-addicted youth obsessed with videotapes. they even go to the same nightclub, tunnel.

Slightly less bloody and psychotic, but I agree. I didn't remember the nightclub Tunnel from 'American Psycho' though. Time for a re-read soon.
It's very Bret Easton Ellis. Not much really happens, but as I'm an avid fan of Ellis, I liked the book a lot.

had high (fnarr) hopes for it, thought it was absolutely awful unfortunately, embarrassing

currently reading Hunter S Thompson's "The Rum Diary" - am not a fan of his stuff in general but am really enjoying this one
You didn't like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas? I thought that one was tons of fun and a barrel of laughs 😎

I meam, with lines like:
"As your attorney I advise you to take a hit out of the small brown bottle in my shaving kit" and
"As your attorney I advise you to get the chiliburger. It's a hamburger with chili on it"

not so much no, but it's one of them that I saw the film first and so the book was then ruined by having my mental imagery dictated by the film instead of my imagination

book first always
