I'm a huge fan of Will Christopher Baer and his Phineas Poe trilogy. If you ever get a chance, read them (The first one is Kiss Me, Judas. Second is Penny Dreadful. It ends with Hell's Half Acre). I would stake my life on any Ellis fan loving every deeply disturbing word written in those pages. It's about a dude waking up in the proverbial tub of ice and his quest to track the hooker who stole his kidney. It may stink a little of "been there, done that", but Baer has a voice unlike any I've heard and could make taking dump sound more beautiful than childbirth. He saved Noir Fiction for me.
I also love Aaron Cometbus and his Double Duce was (and is) a big influence on me. It sort of made me realise I was a bit different from all my friends as I lent it to a couple who all thought it was really depressing whereas I thought it was uplifting and joyful.
Everyone seems to love this Cormac McCarthy guy. I read No Country after I saw the movie and was pretty blown away. It's hard for me to believe he's got 3 other books better than No Country for Old Men. (The Road, Blood Meridian, The Crossing)
