I'm looking for stylistically particular book recommendations.
I want something in the same vein as Faulkner or Scott McClanahan or Camus' "The Renegade, or a Confused Mind."
-I want something written in the first person with tangible fervor. Something where the speaker feels hell-bent on talking to you.
-I want jarring, disjointed, and/or cyclical prose. Prose that reads somewhere between conversational and schizophrenic rambling. Long sentences, short sentences, incomplete sentences, doesn't matter provided it isn't Ulysses-level horse shit. It does not necessarily need to be stream-of-conscious.
-I would like something with a personal narrative. Not necessarily a memoir, just actively first person.
-Bonus points for mundane plots
-Bonus points for addiction and/or mental illness
-Bonus points for something from Appalachia or the American South
