H.P. Lovecraft, E.A. Poe....both of them fall into the really and truly "bizarre" literature category.
Also - William Burroughs, yes, but not really "that" deranged. "Naked Lunch" is chock-full of disturbing imagry, but I don't know if that's
particularly a testament to how deranged he was as a person..?
I think in terms of "society," Tim Leary was up there with his tune in - turn on - drop out ideas.
Palahniuk, his books are interesting...I met him a few years ago at Prarie Lights Bookstore in Iowa City, IA. In real life, he's not nearly as
interesting as one would think from his writing...
Just my $.02
