David Sedaris is one of the greatest comic writers and Theft by Finding ably demonstrates this. Sedaris' diairies are as witty and observant as you would expect and the short entries make it fun to dip in-and-out of.
Louis and Louise by Julie Cohen tells the story of two characters existing in parallel. Cohen explores gender and identity in an interesting and absorbing way that will give you a lot to think about.
Thrity Umrigar's second novel in the Between Us series, The Secrets Between Us, is about a cleaner who is raising her granddaughter in India. Umrigar writes characters that are so believable, you will feel like they are friends of yours. Highly recommended.
Evelyn Waugh's classic When the Going Was Good is included which contains exceprts of his travel books in the 1920s and 1930s. Very funny and wryly observant.
Modern day Australian polymath, Nick Cave, has And the Ass Saw the Angel, a southern gothic tale about a mute and prostitute. Evocative and epic, you will not be able to put it down.
