Where discussion of Woody Allen does belong on this list is where his work crosses with hard-boiled and noir fiction.

Like his short stories "Mr. Big" or "The Whore of Mensa," both featuring his P.I. Kaiser Lupowitz. Sure, they're parodies, but his riffs on the genre are dead on. And those are both literary, printed on paper and everything, so they're safe to discuss.
