There's always the works by the Marquis de Sade if you want rape and violence.
Dont know about best, but the singer from the Swans (M.Gira) wrote a book called the Consumer. Its certainly very dark, sexual and violent.
Its a collection of short stories that probably first what you are looking for. To be extra depressed you should listen to their music while reading it.
The Girl Next Door...
What's the deal with anonymous poster? What happened to #####?
They asked to have the post deleted. I wasn't doing that. The least I could do was remvoe them and keep the thread going. Hence some jiggery pokery.
Nice language there, Stewart
You should do what slashdot does and change Anonymous Poster to Anonymous Coward.
I'd recommend Heroes Die or Blade of Tyshalle by Matthew Stover.
Women by Bukowski
Killing Johnny Fry by Walter Mosley
My girfriend comes to the city and beats me up by Stephen Elliott
All 3 sexual, mildly violent books.
I would go with: silence of the lambs, red dragon, hannibal, hannibal rising
GRRM's Song of Ice and Fire is fairly violent at times.
I can think of 2 books.... SNUFF by Eric Enck and Adam Huber and PILATE by Steven Rage. Reviewed both of these books for my website. They are both wicked!
Much of Samuel Delany, but his best is definitely Dahlgren, which I read 3 times in my 20s. Haven't been back to it since but it was great stuff.
yeah i agree. whoever posted this is totalllly lame. maybe like, "lame anonymous coward' would be most suiting.
these are all dark and violent, but i think the OP of this thread was going for books entailing younger characters and more of a coming of age type theme to them.
also - there have been a lot of suggestions - would anyone who has read a lot of them care to comment on which they think is/are the best one/s?
good day everyone
