Few are deep, but all are fun:
Almost anything by Elmore Leonard
Bill Bryson's books (travel and language history, and surprisingly funny)
I agree wholeheartedly on the Terry Pratchett novels --- My fav is Reaper Man (guess what that's about)
Sharyn McCrumb's "Bimbos of the Death Sun"
The "slut noir" genre of Lauren Henderson, Katy Munger, and Sparkle Hayter (yep, that's her name) also related, Janet Evanovich's novels-- a series beginning with "One for the Money"
Hunter S. Thomson's work through the mid-1970s
Marilyn Todd's historical mystery series-- starts with "I, Claudia"
To go old-school-- Dorothy Parker (primarily poetry) and in a completely different, non-existient England of the 1920s way -- P.G. Wodehouse (the Jeeves and Wooster novels to start... then the Blandings series... and Psmith)
