Books Featuring Unlikeable Protagonists

The list is titled Wonderful Books Featuring Unlikeable Protagonists. I don’t know that any of them are “wonderful,” since the only one I’ve read is Dostoevsky’s Notes From the Underground, a book I found unremarkable. But you are your own judge here. The list:

African Psycho by Alain Mabanckou

Portnoy’s Complaint by Philip Roth

Notes From the Underground by Fyodor Dostoevsky

The Elementary Particles by Michel Houllebecq

Ham on Rye by Charles Bukowski (The article made a mistake in its description.)

The Hottest Dishes of the Tartar Cuisine by Alina Bronsky

The She-Devil in the Mirror by Horacio Castellanos Moya

The End of Alice by A.M. Homes

We Need to Talk About Kevin: A Novel by Lionel Shriver

American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis
