the Bible. To be specific, the book of Job. You can't get any more fucked up.

On the plus side, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, and Revelations are entertaining.

oh, and Trout Fishing in America, but fucked-up in a good way. Also the Sound and the Fury, but in a good way. I like books that are fucked-up in a good way.

I can verry much appreciate your choice. It makes perfect sense to so many different peolple, for so many different and often opposing views/beliefs.

mine was Diary of a Drug Fiend. Very dark and scary but, it has a happy fairy tale ending.

Are short stories included? If so, "Story of the Eye." And before anybody asks I'll just come right out and admit I had never heard of it until I heard Hissing Fauna...

Oh, and a lot of Roald Dahl's short stories are really dark, if far less graphic.

Lolita was pretty screwy but at the same time completely beautiful. Nabokov has such a way with words.

I can't believe that my library doesn't have any copies of Lolita, its shocking, I tried to find it a while ago.

Most disturbing I know would be Justine though, one of my old teachers read bits of it to us, it was really gross.

That Tom Wolfe book, but then again all I read is contemporary realistic fiction, so not much of what I read is that fucked up.

Requiem For a dream by Herbert Selby Jr. The way they show the mother is so sad.

I heard his other book (last exit to brooklyn) is also good
