Looking for recs in the Literary Detective genre...
I've read such stories by Pynchon, Borges, Eco, DFW, Gibson and Auster
Any other recommendations? I think The Crying of Lot 49 may be my favorite of this subgenre, and sits high in my favorites of all time.
Last thread, I got recommended either Chandler or Hammett, do not get me wrong, I enjoy them both, but they are not what I mean by "Literary Detective" fiction. I am not sure how to better define the term except maybe as works that use the Detective genre as a jumping off point for literary experimentation instead of simply intending to be a genre piece.
