You may recall a quip about Portnoy's Complaint along the lines of, "I'd like to meet the author but I wouldn't want to shake his hand."

That could also be applied to Nicholson Baker, author of 'The Fermata' which is actually even more onanistic.

American Gods by Neil Gaiman

The old gods still walk the earth but are living obscure poverty ridden lives. The mysterious Mr Wednesday (Odin?) tries to lead them in a war against the new up and coming gods, Media, Telivision, Internet etc with the help of Shadow an ex con he travels the USA gathering his forces

I couldn't put it down

I used to have that, but lost it a few years ago. I thought it was very good too.
