Reviews

"One of America's finest storytellers has been anthologized: The Collected Stories of Deborah Eisenberg (Picador) locates elegant symmetries in uncertain lives navigating uncertain times." --VOGUE.com

"Sarcastic, self-aware, and often wickedly funny.... Perhaps the most compelling aspect of Eisenberg's stories is the ease with which she captures the fearful excitement of being human, and our reluctance to acknowledge how little our circumstances have to do with our own decisions." --Rachael Brown, TheAtlantic.com

"If you haven't discovered Deborah Eisenberg's beautifully crafted short stories, this is a good choice, because you will want to read and reread them all. These stories are rich and delicate, and linger in the memory to shift and amplify their values. Eisenberg's subtle, intelligent observations put readers in the best company." --Prairie Lights Bookstore

"What is it like to be a genius? Ask Deborah Eisenberg. The question is not as hyperbolic as it might seem; last year, Eisenberg was awarded a MacArthur fellowship, usually referred to as a 'Genius Grant'. If that award served to spotlight Eisenberg's achievement as one of America's foremost writers of fiction, this new volume of collected stories confirms it, illustrating that over the past 25 years Eisenberg has become better and better at the things at which, 25 years ago, she was already something of a master...." --Belinda McKeon, Irish Times

"This season, I chose four books of stories to read and recommend. At the top of my list--and highly recommended--is The Collected Stories of Deborah Eisenberg." --Ann LaFarge, Hudson Valley News
