What are some modern books that do visceral violence really well? Most otherwise grotesque books seem to skimp over the details like a PG-13 movie.

Pic semi related

American Psycho (incoming contrarians)
2666
Naked Lunch, though it's more hallucinatory
McCarthy in general, specifically Blood Meridian

Underground by Murakami.

Seriously OP, do you really just want violence without caring about genre or quality?

The two best violent novels i have read recently are a brief history of seven killings and pic related. Blood Meridian is also excellent.

American Psycho is not, and you would be better of seeing the movie. Only /b/ types fall for it.

Is American Psycho good? I love the movie but I'm not sure if I want to pick up the book yet.

In The Miso Soup, by Ryu Murakami. NOT to be confused with meme author Haruki Murakami.

I do care about quality, but I'm willing to sacrifice a bit if the gorey details are pretty damn good. The devil all the time seems pretty great from the first couple pages. Thanks.

Unless you think obscenely long lists of brand names/products make for good writing, avoid like the plague. The movie is better in every imaginable way.

The ending of White Noise is pretty intense, but it's not really that graphic. Same with Lolita. There's also a pretty great stabbing in Dorian Grey

That's hot.
