Hello. I'm looking to write a novel and I feel like I'm drawing the appropriate amount of inspiration as a twenty-something college-educated man living in a job-scarce (especially for college graduates) semi-Depression state America.
I believe my writing style is hip and humorous, my characters roguish yet urbane, with plots centered on eccentric yet commonplace situations, bromances, and hedonistic sips of life (sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll) and themes touching upon secular humanism to compassion when called for.
Are there any modern books of similar nature that I should read up on for reference? They don't have to match my description exactly, but something along those lines would help me out.
Thanks for the help.
