Pushing Boundaries: Best Transgressive Fiction

Disturbing, often challenging literature, the focus is on characters who feel confined by the norms and expectations of society and who break free of those confines in unusual and/or illicit ways. Rebelling against the basic norms of society, the protagonists of transgressive fiction may seem mentally ill, anti-social, or nihilistic.
