"Leaving Brooklyn" is one of my favorite books by Lynne Sharon Schwartz (and also one of my favorite books). I think it would be a good introduction. But Schwartz's work is so varied (novels, short stories, essays, poetry etc.) that other books might be the right start for other people. Her excellent collection "The Melting Pot" contains two of my favorite short stories, "The Two Portraits of Rembrandt" and "Killing the Bees." "Ruined by Reading" is a classic meditation on books and the book habit. It is rich and funny and subtle and sharp.
