tan woman who owns the Fruit And Words store

January 17, 2007

From the short story Fruit and Words in Aimee Bender’s Willful Creatures.  The narrator stops at the Fruit And Words store some 40 miles out of Vegas, because she craves a mango.  There the tan woman shows her astonishing fruits and the words she sells as well.  Homemade words in solid, liquid, or gas.  A Powell’s interview with Bender.
