I'd recommend "A Feast of Snakes" and "Car"

Feast of Snakes is solid.

Crews is brilliant. Besides 'Feast' and 'Car', I recommend 'Body', 'Munching of America', 'Scar Lover' and 'Classic Crews'; a collections of essential essays.

My friend Kayla was a fellow at Syracuse and she convinced them to hire Crews for a reading. He showed up all sketchy, demanded to be paid up front in cash, because he was in serious trouble, and was all around what she had hoped.

Scarlover was full of interesting characters moved so slowly, and not due to flowery or engaging prose, just a lack of linear motion, the same four settings over and over and over relying on the same recipes for tension.

Vastly under-rated, highly entertaining, completely twisted. A true American treasure.
