《紐約時報》年度出版推薦好書!長踞《舊金山時報》暢銷書排行榜長達七週!
16篇宛若各式璀璨寶石組成的短篇故事集,獨具原創性的超現實情節讓人為之驚艷,在現實生活中呈現古怪、特異又迷人的奇想世界,不容錯過。

一個飽受過往悲傷折磨的女圖書館員,決定要和所有踏進她所任職圖書館的男人發生性關係;一名陷入半瘋癲狀態、卻又美得教人移不開目光的女人,尾隨一名陌生男子回家,企圖尋求並沉溺於瘋狂的性愛中,赤裸裸的她被綁在椅子上,同一時刻,該名男子就坐在她身邊,盯著電視上關於莫札特的記錄片看;還有一名女人,生下了自己的母親;另一名女人的丈夫剛從戰地重返家園,在戰場上他不幸喪失雙唇,歸鄉的他必須面對一個殘酷又痛心的問題:妻子面對失去嘴唇的他,還能一如往常愛他嗎?

Aimee Bender的小說描述了一則則奇異的故事,故事中的男人與女人,全部都被超乎尋常的巨大慾望、情慾掌控,甚至扭曲。這些不尋常的故事,完全脫離了我們最為熟知的日常風景,16篇故事在彷彿非現實世界的奇妙情境中穿梭,在想像邊境遊走,怪異、獨特卻又如詩一般動人。

 

A grief-stricken librarian decides to have sex with every man who enters her library. A half-mad, unbearably beautiful heiress follows a strange man home, seeking total sexual abandon: He only wants to watch game shows. A woman falls in love with a hunchback; when his deformity turns out to be a prosthesis, she leaves him. A wife whose husband has just returned from the war struggles with the heartrending question: Can she still love a man who has no lips?

Aimee Bender's stories portray a world twisted on its axis, a place of unconvention that resembles nothing so much as real life, in all its grotesque, beautiful glory. From the first line of each tale she lets us know she is telling a story, but the moral is never quite what we expect. Bender's prose is glorious: musical and colloquial, inimitable and heartrending.

Here are stories of men and women whose lives are shaped--and sometimes twisted--by the power of extraordinary desires, erotic and otherwise. The Girl in the Flammable Skirt is the debut of a major American writer.
