Both these books are wonderful! I would love to write like either one. The Contssa's New Machine is a twisted little fairy tale, but plausible story, beautifully written by Carey Wallace.
How Did You Get This Number is stories and observations by Sloane Crosley who just kills me, you will love the way she thinks. Also by Sloane is I Was Told There'd Be Cake. A similar book with different stories. Happy Reading!
