How Not To Murder Your Mother by Stephanie Calman.  It's OK, quite funny but her mother isn't like mine so I can appreciate it but not always relate to it.

Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut
Thats really strange I tried the 'Who do you write like' on the writers page part of the forum, where you paste your work into a site and it tells you who you write like, I put 3 poems in, 2 of them came back 'James Joyce' the other one came back 'Kurt Vonnegut' who I have never heard of before.

Just read a review on amazon of 'Cat's Cradle'  Imaginative, weird and funny, sounds like my cup of tea :)
