I can highly recommend Italo Calvino's works too. In addition to the aforementioned The Cloven Viscount and Invisible Cities, I can add The Climbing Baron and The Non-Existing Knight.
I am glad Borges was mentioned. Borges, like Calvino, is not just weird, he's actually an excellent writer. A complete collection of his short stories is a must for any literature lover.
