David Sedaris.

So while Jake has been fawning over Jenny Owen Youngs (he never stood a chance stacked against Pocahontas/Missy Elliot covers), I've been reading Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris. A 50-minute delayed train followed by 3 hours of traveling home allowed me to make a sizable dent in the book and I'm madly in love with it. While it's an amazing narrative he usually has snide remarks or opinions that resemble a good blogger's best day. I'm pretty sure he himself would resent that remark and while I know that he's far and beyond blogging, it just strikes that tone to me sometimes. His wit makes me quite literally, laugh out loud, and his poignant moments shine brilliantly. Oh look at me, trying to review a book. Basically, this guy is the shit and I wasn't expecting it which makes him all the better, even when I disagree with some of his strongly held opinions.
