Willful Creatures | Aimee Bender
5 posts | 13 read | 10 to read
Aimee Benders 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 womans 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. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Aimee Bender's The Color Master.

This was a great, weird little collection. Loved the story about the potatoes that won't go away, and the boy with keys for fingers 🤓 short stories seem to be exactly what I'm in the mood for lately 😊

theinfophile Amy Bender was my first writing professor. I have this on my TBR for this year ❤❤❤ 3y

This was my first short story collection, and boy was it weird! I really did enjoy the book, but some stories were just really out there. I will definitely check out more of her work.
