DFW's Signifying Rappers, his essay collections, and other essayists I should probably know about.

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I just finished DFW's Signifying Rappers. I've already read Consider the Lobster and A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again and am I huge fan of his essays. Does anyone know of any other essays of his, possibly in another collection? Are there any other essayists who you can recommend?

I've also read (and dug) Michael Chabon's Manhood for Amateurs, all of Vonnegut's essay collections, and some of Ayn Rand's (I really enjoyed Return of the Primitive).
