Read Drive by James Sallis this weekend. A novella. Reminded me of Jim Thompson's work, which I would call sociopathic noir. The main character, called only the Driver, comes in and out of focus, both empathetic and alienated from his own (depressing, violent) story. A story which is different from the movie, by the way. And perhaps not as good. Still, with an additional caution that the style sometimes trips where it should spin, I would recommend this to anyone who likes the dark, dark stuff.
