The Girl in the Flammable SkirtThe Girl in the Flammable Skirt by Aimee Bender

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This collection of short stories might be described as magical realism. There is always something amiss in each story - a man returns home from war without lips, a boyfriend is de-evolving, a girl has a hand made of fire. It is these foibles that drive these stories and drive them a fairy-tale-like quality. They are beautifully written in succinct tight sentences, yet still pack genuine human emotion and feeling. Highly recommended.
