Novel-ember: Day Twenty One

Day Twenty One: My Sister's Hand in Mine: The Collected Works of Jane Bowles.

This anthology contains the amazing novella, Two Serious Ladies, which is another John Waters recommendation. 

It's a really funny, witty and odd chronicle of two women who embark on separate adventures where they basically discover the joys of "slumming". Features lots of incredible dialogue, for example - "I have gone to pieces, which is a thing I've wanted to do for years."

Copies can be found on Amazon.
