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.

I even picked up Infinite Jest but then decided to just never read it because I heard it's about some guy and his alcoholism and relationship problems, could find some slightly better book to spend that much time on.
(it looks like I don't even care about quality as long as they're big and eccentric... Castle of Udolpho and Melville the Wanderer were ok)

@coldwave that's a bizarre description of Infinite Jest. i assume the "alcoholic" is James Incandenza, but it's not "about" that character. It's hard to give it a concise description.
