Psyche in a Dress, by Francesca Lia Block
This is the weirdest book I've read all summer. The plot line isn't very strong and the characters and setting aren't clear. The craftmanship is beautiful. Half the book is in poetry. Psyche falls in love with the god of love then he leaves and she spends her life being a bunch of different people and doing things like working for Aphrodite that she thinks might be payment and get her back her lover. To find out the end to this weird story you have to read the book.
