    One thought on “The Stories (So Far)”

    1. I found this book at the highly recommended Second Story Books in Washington, DC Dupont Circle just last weekend I looked at it a long while I keep seeing mention about her, but not her writing, which has long sort of intrigued and annoyed me I ve looked for Eisenberg in my own library on the shelves but she s either constantly checked out or they don t have any of her books I ve been too lazy to actually check their database So when I found this used copy for half the cover price, I figured it [...]

    2. Deborah Eisenberg possesses enormous skill in connecting the reader s empathy to the plight of her characters with an objectivity conveying both deliciously mordant satire and the implication that if we can only understand ourselves a bit , some measure of redemption is possible Often at the end of these stories the protagonist is left with little than very bitterly earned self knowledge, yet always with a slim suggestion and perhaps not immediately experienced by the character of a potential f [...]

    3. Is Deborah Eisenberg the American Alice Munro That s a dumb question Stop asking dumb questions.Like Munro, she s amazing at showing how the present mind unpacks the past These stories just kind of unfurl in front of your eyes Just pure, voice driven genius Fortunately, the restaurant Rafe had chosen turned out to be wonderfully soothing It was luxurious and private, and at the sight of the cloakroom, with its rows of expensive, empty coats that called up a world in which generous, broad shoulde [...]

    4. It took me an incredibly long time to make it through this collection This was due to the fact that I took it very slowly and only read a story once every so often It does not mean this wasn t a compelling collection Quite the opposite This collection of short stories is phenomenal Deborah Eisenberg writes a huge range of characters, places, pov s, styles, tones They reflect all the real, raw, honest things inside of us, regardless of the circumstance She does not burrow herself into one niche o [...]

    5. It s hard to locate hilarious stories there aren t many out there So I was excited to read the first few stories in this collection smart, funny, emotional, unexpected reading them was like eating candy, or drinking water And then I thought some others were just okay, and few were unengaging But I m glad I finally read her work I ve owned this collection for 8 9 years, and I m looking forward to other work by Eisenberg A note I can t help but think that this terrible cover is doing her a disserv [...]

    6. Eisenberg is particularly fine at depicting how bewilderment at human relations feels especially to the young, but also when one develops personality defenses that get in the way of connecting with other humans She has paid close attention to how harsh exchanges can feel, and exactly describes how feelings can overpower us I think she must write about this so well because she respects and observes feelings most of us would rather not experience.

    7. Eisenberg propels many of her stories through pungent, captivating dialogue Like conversations that are overheard, joined in progress and out of context, it sometimes takes a while for the reader to sort out what is going on, but the joy and satisfaction is in assembling Eisenberg s intricate puzzles of personalities, relationships and situations Her stories are often surprising suspenseful, and The Robbery in particular clutched at my heart.

    8. Wow This is such a great collection of short stories If it weren t for Francine Prose s Reading Like a Writer, and her great list of must reads in the appendix, I never would have even heard of Deborah Eisenberg She seems to be a master of dialogue and those oh so subtle conversations that are really being conducted underneath the spoken words Simply breathtaking

    9. This is everything that Eisenberg wrote up until Twighlight of the Superheroes There s a story called Robbery and another called What it was Like Seeing Chris that I have never been able to shake She is a master.

    10. the entire collection is understated brilliance, and days, about quitting smoking, is the best story i ve ever read about addiction and grieving the humour is superb, while not underplaying with terrible pain the narrator is dealing with one of my favourite combos.

    11. Among other people, I would very much like to be Deborah Eisenberg when I grow up Think about it as a bonus, you d be married to Wallace Shawn Not too shabby.
