Book recommendation

If you enjoy mythology, I recommend picking up the book The Orphan's Tales: In the Night Garden by Catherynne Valente. Reminiscent of 1001 Arabian Nights, Orson Scott Card's Hart's Hope, and a bit of the Ramadan issue of Sandman, the book burrows down with stories inside stories inside stories until the boundaries of the interlocking tales slowly unravel and give way. Don't start it unless you can afford to sleep in the next morning.
