Hey /lit/, I found this board not long ago and began reading again. The problem is I made one of the first authors I read Pynchon. I'm spoiled now, and books I have tried to read since then just aren't enough for me. I recently decided to stop reading As I Lay Dying less than 100 pages in. I don't like the very southern setting, I'm not grabbed by the writing as I was with Pynchon, there aren't enough of those juicy sentences to keep me interested. What can I read now? What is there to read that has that same awesome Pynchonian language?
(For reference, I've read Huxley, DeLillo, Flaubert, Nabokov was great, DFW was pretty good and has that same love of language, Wilde, and Marquez but none have been quite as satisfying)

France or Italy?
Call it as you see it. If you want to judge them as they exist today, okay. If you want to judge the two on their histories as a whole, okay. If you base your vote strictly on food, architecture, musical traditions, weather, cities, countryside, films, politics, painters--it's all good!
