Book recommendations?

So, this is a bit personally loaded as a thread, that is, it was created out of a personal bias.

BUT, I've noticed that in my reading lately, it has all had a sort of depressing slant to it, and well, I'm not always in the mood, or need at least a small reprieve.

I've been digging for some "funny" writing, or more so satirical based essay compilations, and am not finding anything new (unread) that is grabbing me (essay and short story compilations are my book love).

So, help?! Any suggestions for some solid writing -- whether fiction or non -- that has some satire hidden in there?
