Does anyone else have the annoying problem of being absolutely obsessed with an author who's only written two books?

I read Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close first, and there was just so much in it that resonated, that just hurt to read because it was so true, know what I mean? And a month or two ago I read Everything is Illuminated in like four days and I've read it twice since because he hasn't written anything else yet!

No seriously, I know this isn't an actual problem, it's a really good thing actually because I've never anticipated a new book like this ever in my life. But I was wondereing if anyone else has read him, and if so can you recommend anything similar?

(I'm having almost the same issue with Dave Eggers, but I'm a little more patient with him... they actually edited a book together, The Future Dictionary of America, which I was delighted to find out because I was wondering if they knew each other)

Glad to see someone else like it. I got Illuminated for Christmas but haven't got to read it yet, though I'm dying to, along with All the King's Men. Did anyone see the movie? It's reviews were a mixed bag, with holes.

All the King's Men - is that JSF too? I thought he only wrote Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Is there another one I must order immediately, or is this a false hope?
