The Day of the Locust (Penguin Classics) by Nathanael West
Both horrifying and compulsive, this is a fantastic journey. I came across this novel by chance and it feels criminal not to have had it recommended before.
Numerous parts of the narrative are disturbing, but that is part of the appeal. It is an incredibly quick book to read, but the images and questions it raises stay with you long after.
