Chuck Palahniuk is the guy who wrote Fight Club, as well as a few other decent novels. However, I was reminded of a particularly gruesome piece of writing by the man after explaining what 'docking' was to people in the pub yesterday. If you're not easily disgusted, then I suggest you give this a read. Apparently people passed out at a public readings.
…and if you enjoyed that, I'd recommend 'Stranger than Fiction', 'Survivor' and 'Lullaby'.
