Mythic, but anti-epic, these fascinating stories arise in the hinterlands of our lives or of the fantasy literature with which we are familiar. A somnolent syrup flows in their veins, but they have sharp teeth. ( )

Couldn't get through it. I appreciate how well she writes, but I don't comprehend her stories well enough to enjoy them.

I prefer Bender's magical realism to her more realistic fiction. This definitely was too much sex--and too much awkward and uncomfortable sex--as far as I'm concerned. ( )

The Color Master: Stories is a newly released collection of short stories by Aimee Bender. Presented in three parts the 15 stories are all infused with a sadness (Bender also wrote The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake), as well as a dream-like quality in which the ordinary can take painful or unconventional turns.

More and more I find myself becoming a fan of the short story. There are stories in this collection that certainly would help that evolution along, but there are also several stories that were disturbing. My favorites were Tiger Mending, Faces, The Fake Nazi, Lemonade, Bad Return, Wordkeepers, The Color Master, and Americca.

The stories in the collection are:

Part One
"Appleless" was disturbing as a group of people who are only eating apples become entranced/obsessed by a woman who doesn't.
"The Red Ribbon" chronicles a wife who decides to make her husband pay for intimacy.
"Tiger Mending" follows two sisters into Malaysia where one is to mend tigers whose skin is shredding.
"Faces" is from the point of view of a boy whose concerned mother is trying to understand why he doesn't remember his friends' names or faces.
In "On a Saturday Afternoon" a young woman invites two male friends to her apartment and then plays a game that requires them to get intimate with each other while she watches.

Part Two
In "The Fake Nazi" an elderly man keeps turning himself into authorities for war crimes he couldn't have committed.
"Lemonade" follows a teenage girl at a mall - trying to fit in.
"Bad Return" delves into the friendships of women.
In "Origin Lessons" a professor explains the vastness of the universe.
"The Doctor and the Rabbi" tackles belief and how one lives their life.

Part Three
In "Wordkeepers" people are completely forgetting the names of common things, perhaps due to technology.
"The Color Master" is based on a 17th century fairy tale where dress makers must make shoes/clothes to resemble
In "State of Variance" a woman who only sleeps an hour a night tells her son that he has a face that is too perfect, too symmetrical.
In "Americca" a family is disturbed to find useful but odd items mysteriously appearing in their home.
"The Devourings” is another story based on an earlier fairy tale. A human woman marries a male ogre, who accidentally eats their childre

Highly Recommended - if you enjoy magic realism and can handle some provocative content.

Disclosure: I received an advanced reading copy of this book from Doubleday for review purposes. ( )
