The quickness of storytelling, as Calvino discusses in his essay of that title. The necessariness of these tales which seem to show up in every culture.

Event address:. The Color Master Hardcover.
While Bender writes of otherworldly beings and ogre wives, she weaves together threads of humanity. Her use of the magical allows her closer proximity to the emotional. Bender takes the fairytale, the fable, the myth, and renders them for a modern audience. Color does not exist alone.
Where in Lemon Cake , characters were unaware of the emotion that flavored the food they cooked, here the Color Master chooses the emotion to color a garment. Anger is the piercing color of sky. Death is blue-purple. Bender blurs lines of emotion, color, creation and purpose. In so doing she asks questions about our intent in the real world.
