Could be books, could be articles, could be bathroom stall graffiti... Just has to be writing that you like. And you don't even have to like it all that much.
  • Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino (my favorite book and my favorite author)
  • The Red Night trilogy by William S. Burroughs

  • "The Man with the Blue Guitar" by Wallace Stevens
  • Meatheads, or How to DIY Without Getting Killed by Noah Wareness (which I admittedly haven't finished)
  • Man After Man: An Anthropology of the Future by Dougal Dixon (as much a piece of illustration as a piece of writing)
  • Grendel by John Gardner
