I've been lax in familiarizing myself with Michale Kupperman's and Harry Crews work. Where do I start?

Is Tree of Life about Episcopalians?! Do I have to watch it again?

Shades may have more ideas, but I have read Crews' "A Feast of Snakes" and "Scar Lover." Both were crazy-insane and had some brilliant writing in them, but I wouldn't expect characters you necessarily would root for. Also, I wasn't quite satisfied where "A Feast of Snakes" ended up, though it might deserve a re-read. I would recommend reading Crews, though, and would say, of those two, A Feast of Snakes is a better start. But again, Shades may be more of a Crews scholar.  :D

It was fun! Although I do regret calling for "another Altamont" at one point.

I've been a big fan of Kupperman's work for years. Assuming you enjoy Dadaist escapades into pulpy genre fiction, I would recommend Snake and Bacon's Cartoon Cavalcade. Kupperman's later work has more of a structure (ie Mark Twain's autobiography), but the Cavalcade is more like a chocolate box, single servings of a wide variety. I'd hope this might draw you in:
