Reading Log: Aimee Bender, The Color Master

My teacher for the introductory short story class I took sophomore year was super into Aimee Bender. And now I’m super into Aimee Bender. I went on an Aimee Bender bender a few summers ago and read all of Willful Creatures on a plane ride.

The Color Master is Bender’s newest short story collection. The stories are strange and tender. She’s a master of speculative fiction.

I don’t know how to explain it. I find Bender’s stories heartbreaking. Each one just devastates me. I want to do what she does but I’m not sure where to start.
