    DescriptionIn Willful Creatures Aimee Bender takes us on a journey to a fantastical world in which authentic love blossoms. This is a place where a boy with keys for fingers is a hero, a family of pumpkin heads embrace their ironhead son and potato-children dotingly follow their mother around as she completes her daily chores. With the mix of charm and keenly felt emotion that characterised her New York Times bestseller The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, Bender once again proves herself to be a masterful chronicler of the human condition.

    Review quote
    "I am a long-standing passionate fan of Aimee Bender's stories. Her images explode, her words ignite." -- Alice Sebold, Author Of The Lovely Bones "Contemporary fairy tales . 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 "To curl up with an Aimee Bender story is to thank heaven you ever learned to read in the first place." Entertainment Weekly "New, exciting, harsh, rugged and unyielding . Every sentence . is a fresh surprise." The Washington Post "[Bender] is Hemingway on an acid trip; her choices are twisted, both ethereal and surprisingly weighty . Terrifyingly lovely." Los Angeles Times
