ok everyone, I need book recommendations.
I like books to be HUGE, complex to incomplehensible, and sort of pointless. I like: Moby Dick, Pynchon (Gravity's Rainbow, Mason and Dixon), The Quincunx (Palliser), Bas-Lag series, Mieville, Eco, ...
got any similar by more diverse authors? While these were good, being entertained by what JUST white men have to say is reaching its limits.

@coldwave i enjoyed 2666 by Bolaño. The Pale King by DFW is more incomprehesible/pointless than IJ, in my opinion, both because of the theme and the fact that it was assembled by his editor based on drafts he didn't finish


@coldwave House of Leaves is not pointless, but can be incomprehensible

@coldwave Ducks, Newberyport Lucy Ellman is a 1,000 page run on sentence. haven't read it, but am quite intrigured
