Aimee Bender   A year ago this month we featured the delightful stories of Aimee Bender for the first time. Since then, she has offered us two exclusive readings: first, "The Rememberer," a story about a devolving lover, and now, "Drunken Mimi", a story about a romantic interlude between an imp and a mermaid.  
Nathan Englander   Now you can enjoy the title story from Nathan Englander's debut collection, read aloud by the author exclusively for Bold Type. It's also a great opportunity to revisit the work he shared with us when we first featured him in April.
