    I recommend the Best American Essays series (I’m currently on 2007), The Kingdom and the Power by Gay Talese, and some Joan Didion.

    Noooo, don’t do it, David Sedaris is the devil :| (Both him AND his effing sister.)

      interesting list there, will get to your recs first then!

      really? why? i haven’t gotten started on anything by this guy yet. i’ll avoid like the plague :)

        Seconding everything that Amy said (mostly the Best American Essays series) and avoiding David Sedaris. Dude isn’t funny, and he’s ignorant (see his piece on China… awful).

        And I’d personally recommend Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Collected Stories. Love it!
