Except for his cameo on the Simpsons.

I'd read V first. Wish I was more articulate in talking about him but he really does defy description.
I had heard it gives you a taste of his style without being completely impenetrable...plus it's supposedly nowhere near as dense as V or Gravity's Rainbow, and not nearly as long, so I figured it would be a good "sampler" before I tried some of his heavier stuff.
