Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Aimee Bender’s Willful Creatures conjures a fantastical world in which authentic love blooms. This is a place where a boy with keys for fingers is a hero, a woman’s children are potatoes, and a little boy with an iron for a head is born to a family of pumpkin heads. With her singular mix of surrealism, musical prose, and keenly felt emotion, Bender once again proves herself to be a masterful chronicler of the human condition.

Synopsis:

A new collection of all original stories by the author of An Invisible Sign of My Own and The Girl in the Flammable Skirt presents new tales of love, heartbreak, sex, adversity, and potato babies. Reprint.

Synopsis:

Aimee Bender lives in Los Angeles. Her stories have appeared in Granta, GQ, Harper's, Fence, Tin House, Paris Review, and several other publications. She is the author of collection The Girl in the Flammable Skirt and An Invisible Sign of My Own, her first novel.
