Overview

Willful Creatures by Aimee Bender

"Contemporary fairy tales, cushioned by goofy humor and a deep tenderness for her characters, that aren't always as dark or as sinister as they initially appear." —The New York Times Book Review

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.

This author has great talent to write bizarre yet poignant short stories. A definant must read if you want 'think outside the box' type fiction. I can't wait to read more of her stuff.

It's not often you read a collection of stories where you feel an instant connection with every character in every story. Amiee Bender's Willful Creatures is such a book. It's at once funny and heartbreaking and beautiful like music. She is so ridiculously skilled at weaving an original tale that I read this book with a mixture of amazement and jealousy. This is not a book to miss.
