    I really enjoyed Drinking Coffee Elsewhere by ZZ Packer. It was quite a different voice when I read it and the first story stayed with me.

    Jill: Come on – you know you want to!

    Leah: I’ve not read anything by ZZ Packer – but this author has been on my radar. This challenge gives me an excuse to finally read something!
