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
You may like the Vorkosigan saga by Lois McMaster Bujold, it's not incomprehensible nor pointless but I think it's great and it should fit the other requirements.

@tfardet with "pointless" I sort of mean it doesn't have one straightforward theme or moral,
and I don't feel preached at by the author

@tfardet just remembered the proper term for a big collection of interesting thoughts that doesn't directly go anywhere is "encyclopedic novel"
