Fiona Pitt-Kethley might do it for you; see her 'Sky Ray Lolly'

There's no one exactly like Parker. But if I were to pick one RIYL it would be Grace Paley. Paley writes sentences with a similar syntactical snap. Sentences like "He loved me all over myself." Her short story collection The Little Disturbances of Man is stunning.
