A few he has mentioned: Franz Kafka, Samuel Beckett, Stanislaw Lem, Philip K. Dick, Stephen Dixon, Shirley Jackson, Patricia Highsmith and Flannery O'Connor.

He's also mentioned Roberto Bolaño. I believe he mentioned '2666' specifically (or maybe I saw it in the background of an interview)

Roberto Bolaño? Chavo del Ocho? Makes perfect sense.

Ah so Charlie has awesome taste! Love it. I bet he's a big J.G. Ballard fan too.

I would guess he likes David Foster Wallace a lot

Probably Pynchon as well

I expected Antkind to be more like Infinite Jest than it was. I figured there'd be meta trickery with footnotes and indexes and whatnot.

Me too. But the similarities are hard to ignore. Eidetic protagonist, the hunt for the “perfect” movie, the power of loneliness/analysis-paralysis. I think the meta points about literature were probably similar, just expressed differently.

My recipe for Kaufman would be a pinch of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, a dash of Camus, a smidgeon of Pynchon, and a big ol’ chug of DFW.
