Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits
and other curious things

by Cate Gardner

Published: 2010
Genre: Short Stories
Paperback: 200 pages
Rating: 4

Description from the publisher's site:
The short story collection, Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits and Other Curious Things, is guaranteed to contain multiple instances of pinstripe suits and at least a few curious things.

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): whimsical
Another gem of a book! Reading this book was like walking into a curio shop filled with wondrous treasures. In each story you find an interesting or strange oddity to delight. Mind you, not all sweet and happy things though.

I liked the wordplay and imagery quite often presented in one sentence. Like this one...

Amusing quote: only one of many in this book
Microscopic burlesque dancers performed a routine in her stomach.
