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, Under the 82nd Airborne, All Around Atlantis and her most recent collection, Twilight of the Superheroes.
Recipient of a 2009 MacArthur Fellowship, Deborah Eisenberg was recently recognized by Ben Marcus, writing in The New York Times, as one of the most important fiction writers now at work. She has been publishing spare and elegant prose to national acclaim since the 1980s, with many of her stories appearing in The New Yorker. Winner of the Rea Award for the Short Story, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and three O. Henry Awards, Eisenberg's latest work is her 1,000-page Collected Stories.
