    Can anyone here recommend some works similar to Charles Bukowski or Nelson Algren? I've read The Neon Wilderness by Algren and the Henry Chinaski series of books by Bukowski. I like the seedy, gritty, warts and all feel of those books and wondered if anyone knew of similar authors or books. Thanks.

    I'm a huge Bukowski fan...he was a huge admirer of Hemingway and John Fante...I would also highly recommend Celine, who is also a character in Hank's last book 'Pulp'.
