The Festival of Earthly Delights, Matt Dojny
"It was Samuel Beckett who first recognized failure (and especially male failure) as the perfect raw material for the modern comic novel. Matt Dojny’s The Festival of Earthly Delights is a hell of a lot more fun to read than The Unnameable, with just as much failure per page. And Dojny’s novel has pictures. Beckett couldn’t draw to save his life."
