Deborah Eisenberg is one of my favorite writers--she deserves every prize she's ever won. On a side note--am I the only person who's noticed that the book description names Margaret Drabble instead of Eisenberg? It's as if the writer had no idea who wrote these magical stories.

"Synopsis" by , From one of America's finest writers ("San Francisco Chronicle") comes this volume that brings together "Transactions in a Foreign Currency, Under the 82nd Airborne, All Around Atlantis," and Eisenberg's most recent collection, "Twilight of the Superheroes."
"Synopsis" by ,
A collection of the famed UK novelist Margaret Drabble's complete short stories.
"Synopsis" by ,

Margaret Drabbles novels have illuminated the past fifty years, especially the changing lives of women, like no others. Yet her short fiction has its own unique brilliance. Her penetrating evocations of character and place, her wide-ranging curiosity, her sense of irony—all are on display here, in stories that explore marriage, female friendships, the English tourist abroad, love affairs with houses, peace demonstrations, gin and tonics, cultural TV programs; in stories that are perceptive, sharp, and funny. An introduction by the Spanish academic José Fernández places the stories in the context of her life and her novels. This collection is a wonderful recapitulation of a masterly career.

"Synopsis" by ,

“One of Americas finest writers.”—San Francisco Chronicle    “Concentrated bursts of perfection.”—The Times (London)    “Shimmering stories that possess the power and charm to move us.” —The New York Times    “Exhilarating.”—Harpers Magazine    “Outstanding.”—Christian Science Monitor    “Eisenberg simply writes like no one else.”—Elle    “Eisenbergs stories possess all the steely beauty of a knife wrapped in velvet.”—The Boston Globe    “Dazzling.”—Time Out New York    “Magic.”—Newsweek    “Comic, elegant and pitch perfect.”—Vanity Fair    “One of the great fiction writers living in America today.”—The Dallas Morning News    “There arent many contemporary novels as shudderingly intimate and mordantly funny as Eisenbergs best stories.”—The New York Times Book Review

 

Since 1986 with the publication of her first story collection, Deborah Eisenberg has devoted herself to writing “exquisitely distilled stories” which “present an unusually distinctive portrait of contemporary American life” to quote the MacArthur Foundation. This one volume brings together Transactions in a Foreign Currency (1986), Under the 82nd Airborne (1992), All Around Atlantis (1997) and her most recent collection-Twilight of the Superheroes (2006).
