...looking for a light humorous read by a new author. Any suggestions?

If it doesn't matter that he is neither black nor a new writer, "Go the F**k to Sleep" by Adam Mansbach is a light, funny best seller.

I haven't come across many black writers who are into light humor or wry satire. They seem to lean more toward broad comedy and heavy drama lest they be accused of being too "sophisticated". Stanley Crouch might be an exception. Anybody else come to mind???

Check out Baratunde Thurston's lastest book. It does not com out until next month. I have not read it, but everything else I read or seen this guy produce has been pretty funny: His speak on Twitter was technically correct and very funny -- a rare skill.
