Book: Short Cuts by Raymond Carver
This book of selected short stories by Raymond Carver is pretty dark and depressing. I guess people with crappy and creapy lives are more interesting than happy and uneventful lives. I wouldn't recommend it except Carver creates such interesting characters is such a short space that once you start, you won't want to stop reading.
There is a movie out that was inspired by these stories. I'd recommend reading the book first.
