The Collected Stories of Deborah Eisenberg - Deborah Eisenberg

At first glance, this prose isn’t flashy, yet its phrases can dazzle; the narratives aren’t cerebral, but they pose knotty moral problems; the plots are the classic American ones of the road trip, the repeated coming-of-age, the unsettling encounters with other cultures, especially in Latin America, yet each story moves in complex, unexpected directions. The work of a writer renowned for a spare, distinguished output, The Collected Stories Of Deborah Eisenberg (Picador, $22) adds up to a substantial body of work. From her accomplished first book in 1986 through her most recent collection, the acclaimed Twilight of the Superheroes, Eisenberg has chronicled the lives of men and women, mostly in New York, struggling to make sense of their lives, relationships, and careers, but her devastating wit, nuanced satire, and uncompromising yet generous vision, make them much more.
