I haven't read "Set This House in Order" yet; but have been hooked since a drug addled friend lent me one dog eared copy of "Sewer, Gas, Electric" Ah, Meisterbrau.

What about 'Fool on a Hill'? It as been on my shelf for over a year, and I'm thinking about reading it next.

all of his books are great and have to be read.
no story is alike, he doesn`t have a recurring theme.
fool on a hill is a GREAT love story/fairy tale
set this house in order is about split personalities, a serious story that manages without depressing the reader.
sewer, gas, electric is kind of an epic. very whacky, very great. especially the portable Ayn Rand.
then there is his latest book, bad monkeys, which is (sadly) rather short, and not so elaborate (in terms of setting, paraphernalia) but intriguing. kind of mystery/murder/crime story.
read them all!

I agree with sheepasleep. All of his books are way worth the read! It's been quite some time since I have visited all of these and I am still trying to find authors comparable to him. I think you guys would really dig Tom Robbins' Still Life with Woodpecker. Let me know what you think!
