Books to brain, kiss of rain

As the bitter rain pours all over the east coast I'm reading:
Merlin by Robert Nye
Austerlitz by W. G. Sebald
The Man Who Heard Voices Or, How M. Night Shyamalan Risked His Career on a Fairy Tale
by Michael Bamberger
...thus the world melts down in cold wet stripes, and an interior world is embellished with a heart-on-the-sleeve, crazy movie guy, a pornographic devil making his anti-Christ via ghostly permutations with graphic assistance from Beelzebub and uncle Astarot, and a dreamy, but visceral architectural delving into memory and personality.

I'll have to look into all three. I'm always looking for good books, and you really steered me in the right direction with Lynda Barry's CRUDDY.
