Read in August, 2010

One of the best story collections I've ever read. It really is hard to find any collection where more than 50% of the stories are solid, but this just blew my mind. Do not come to these stories if you are looking for an epiphany or revelations. Eisenberg disagrees with such endings as, to her, they are unrealistic. Every story is a gem--a wonder. My favorite story is "Some Other, Better Otto" which had me close to tears several times, and really great character examinations.

I'm so glad I found Eisenberg.

Carla I agree that "Some Better, Some Otto" is an amazing story. I keep reading it again and again.

Thomas Yes it's fabulous! I was fortunate enough to meet her this year. Just as lovely as you'd expect.
