Name a good literary book I've never heard of but that's recognized as great. It can be fiction or non-fiction, from any genre and any language. (Just please not some lame paperback or some college-student manifesto).

I'll do you one better: I'll name a novel that no one except the pitifully small amount of people who have read it know is great: Milkbottle H. What Nathan "N.R" Gaddis, the closest thing I've seen to an intellectual on goodreads, thinks about it: I attempt a literary triangulation. Does this book stand on its own? Yes. Look, ©1968 ; the following are all nearly contemporary or come later. Orlovitz is writing within the very heart of what I like to call postmodernist/after-Joyce fiction, right toward the peak of its high-modernist variation. I claim no series of influences ; because who has read him? There is a dark heart here, misanthropic perhaps in a mood similar to Kohler, but here its not a characternarrator but the novel itself which seems to spit. Lets say already that Milkbottle H is not designed to make you feel one wit better about being a human being ; there is no celebration here of sexuality, that most inner kernel of the human. More like trauma. If it is a matter of the bitterness of a Gaddis, a bitterness not about The Artist’s place in society but the bitter fact of needing to persist as being human. This body ; disgusting, but there you find yourself."
