what I'm looking for

Literary fiction, character-driven, language-driven stuff. Though I can dig some magical realism and other light genre pieces. Hell, I'll read anything if the prose is great. I admit I have a soft spot for the modernists. Give me your lyricism, your fiction that feels like poetry.
