I just started 2666 because I'm nearing the end of The Savage Detectives. But I really like Bolano's work so far.

I'm just about finished with Labyrinths. I really like it a lot, and now I need to track down more Borges.

Although I will admit that some of the essays and parables drag a bit. I prefer his short stories.

Woody Allen's Side Effects

also Heller's Something Happened but having read stuff from both before it and after which is very similar (Cheever, Americana, etc.) makes it kind of/more boring.
