Never read DFW, Pynchon, Joyce, Henry Miller, Kerouac, Burroughs, or anything else along those lines.
I have however read a tonne of classical literature. I adore Hemingway and other "normie" writers. Something about unfamiliar prose puts me off deeply. I guess it's the same way The Beatles don't appeal to me.
Where should I start if I want to very sheepishly dip my toe into the /lit/ style of writing?

read queer by burroughs
it has an almost classical feel and normally fairly standard prose (slightly disturbing story of unrequited love) but still dips into his "routines" and weird prose/surrealism occasionally
The fact that so many books still name the Beatles as “the greatest or most significant or most influential” rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art. Jazz critics have long recognized that the greatest jazz musicians of all times are Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Classical critics rank the highly controversial Beethoven over classical musicians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Rock critics are still blinded by commercial success. The Beatles sold more than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore they must have been the greatest. Jazz critics grow up listening to a lot of jazz music of the past, classical critics grow up listening to a lot of classical music of the past. Rock critics are often totally ignorant of the rock music of the past, they barely know the best sellers. No wonder they will think that the Beatles did anything worthy of being saved.
Man the writers you listed are definitely read by normies. I don't understand this post at all.
How is Hemingway "classical" literature but those other guys aren't?
Read the fucking sticky faggot.
1984 is a great book, it's just that it had the misfortune of both being required reading in high school and having been adopted as a prophecy by anti-establisment neckbeards after the Snowden leaks.
