Cliff, you sure talk pretty. Are you a real Texican or a transplant?
Pimp - As a self-described reformed Texican - with plenty of friends and family back home - I have to say you crack me the fuck up. This is typical humor from my people, this could have been said by several of my old friends. I'd be happy to buy you a Shiner to hear what else you got to say.

Late arrival to this thread, but I do have an opinion:

One of the great American authors, overlooked by many - including this thread. A great author for people like me (and maybe you) - because I have a few beers/bourbons before bed time and reading time. Light, easy reading, but not frivolous. Meaningful prose, but fun to read and funny - and extremely profound at times.

Kurt Vonnegut.

Many titles to read, but I enjoyed (among others):

Bluebeard
Cat's Cradle
Galapagos

I would put A Man Without a Country at the top of that list of Vonnegut's works. However, I thought this thread was about if one has read anything good lately, not a list of what one thinks are the great authors that need to be read. If that's going to be the case...

It did elevate farther than "lately." But if you're a reader, you will appreciate new titles.

Kurt Vonnegut is the modern Samuel Clemens. Imho.
