The Butterfly Lampshade, by Aimee Bender

Staff Pick

Aimee Bender has a knack for finding the surreal in mundane, everyday life. Following the success of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, Bender continues to explore our deep, psychological attachment to the sights, smells, sounds, and treasured keepsakes of our childhoods. (Why do we continue to hang on to dried roses and beetle carcasses?) A fascinating rumination on memory, mental illness, and how we associate people and emotions with "stuff," The Butterfly Lampshade is sure to fill readers with a sweet-and-sour sense of nostalgia.
