Saw a thread about that, but it is gone. Would like to discuss the topic further

Tartt's 'Secret History' included a very nice New-Englang-University feeling. As I am a sucker for atmospheric books in general (that's why I like Kafka), can you recommend similar books? Maybe something that's a tad closer to real literature than TSR.
Someone suggested Malamud, can you recommend?

I remember some Bret Easton Ellis book (rules of attraction i think) having that same vibe, but from the people who werent as smart or narrowly focussed as the secret history crowd.. thats what got me interested in the secret history.

also, if you like kaka check out hermann ungar and his book the class
>>
Bret Easton Ellis is noted, Hermann Ungar seems to lack university feeling

Are other Tartt books worth reading?

Stoner.

Anyone got opinions on 'A New Life' by Malamud?

My first response is 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf' by Edward Albee, though although that is set in a new england university it may not be quite what you like. Franny and Zooey maybe?
