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.

You know, I actually enjoyed this book. I know I'm supposed to hate it, but I find Dan Brown's storytelling fun for what it is.

>I know I'm supposed to hate it

When will this fucking idea die? You aren't SUPPOSED to hate or like anything and until you get out of even referencing this you are a pleb and that's the end of it. God dammit go learn how to think for yourself faggot

Well, I only say that in a tongue in cheek sort of way. "Supposed to hate it" meaning only that the literary world is vehemently against Dan Brown, as well as recognizing his writing as a much lower caliber of entertainment.

I enjoy Dan Brown in the same way I enjoy lying on the couch and watching back to back episodes of Magnum PI. It's no replacement for real good writing you know?

Bump?

Oh cool, thanks. I'd heard of Bolano but never really known what his works were like. Thanks.
