Refund

(2015)
A collection of stories by

 
Awards
National Book Award for Fiction Best Book (nominee)
We think about it every day, sometimes every hour: money. Who has it. Who doesn't. How you get it. How you don't.

Bender uses this very powerful force to pull together a unified collection of stories that deeply explore the ways in which money and the subsequent estimation of value affect the lives of her characters. The stories in Refund reflect our contemporary world - swindlers, reality show creators, desperate artists, siblings, parents - who struggle to figure out how to obtain money, how to give it, earn it, lose it, all the while trying to answer the question: What is the real definition of worth?
