In This Soul of a Woman

I found a new author that I like: Charles de Lint. When I saw the beginning lines below to his short story In This Soul of a Woman, I had to google to find out more:
"Eddie wants to see you."

"What's he want?" Nita asked. "Another blowjob?"
Is that a great beginning or what? That's how I stumbled across the story. It was cited as an example of a good way to begin a story. If you would like to know more about Nita, you can find the story here in google books. Not only was the beginning excellent, so was the ending.
