Intoxicants are only one part of the intricate fabric of Anneliese Mackintosh's compelling world. Reading Any Other Mouth is like reading someone's diary. It's so real it's heartbreaking, but it's also inspiring. So feel-bad it's good.

So noir, so yes. Detective Philip Marlowe is the epitome of the noir anti-hero: hard-drinking and tough, but smart and cultured too. Complex and exciting, it's no wonder The Big Sleep is on TIME's list of the 100 Best Novels.

Some Bukowski worshippers would have you believe his short stories are only for those who like their meat raw and marinated in cheap hard liquor. But there's lots for vegetarians to enjoy too, such as Bukowski's bottomless pit of humanity and his pitch perfect ear for dialogue.
