I'm really enjoying 'I am a Cat' by Soseki. Can anyone recommend something similar? Salient features I look for are sardonic wit and insight on human nature. Political & social commentary not necessary.

Thanks

Try A Confederacy of Dunces. I'll look up the author, storyline. I read it several years back, and loved it for the very reasons you've mentioned.

Hey, I've been meaning to buy Confederacy, and happened upon it at half price books (pretty much my favorite store now). What a hilarious book!
