The Girl in the Flammable Skirt - Aimee Bender My second Aimee Bender book - and I like her more and more :) My love for short stories is relatively new, but this collection is exactly the sort of book that started that love in the first place. Short weird stories that are more about the feeling you get when reading them, than any specific storyline.

And Bender does this perfectly - the odd story of the hunchback who wasn't a real hunchback and therefore lost the love of a woman, the backwards evolutionary man and other stories that to share more than anything an immense feeling of longing - for live, for death, simply for things to be perhaps different than what they are...

I'll definitely be picking up more of Aimee Bender's work - just as strange and quirky as I love :)
