    Goddamn it This is my goddman third Eisenberg book There s only four God damn it This is what I get, this is what an epicurean lifestyle produces Heed my example, people, I ve got a long life to live with only one Eisenberg book left What kind of life could I possibly hope to have Heed my folly What s great about Deb s writing is that everything is airborne All her adjective s as ornate as the King s piesafe are buoyant They soar, stream, alight, bound, waft, you name any kind of movement that goes up and out and Ol Deb has used to express the gallimaufry of unseen and unobserved moments that constitute this life What s makes that interesting 1 is that her stories are so compressed The actual nuts and bolts of the narrative is a cube of steel that used to be a car Beethoven is the only other artist I can think of whose work is comparable to Eisenberg.Damn it Four books Four damn collections Doesn t it seem like she s holding out on us That for every book, another g...

    Deborah Eisenberg s stories have an element of artificiality which make them irritating to read but beautiful to think about afterward Her stories are gorgeous, little jewels, with alluring characters, memorable metaphors and unconventional choices of adjectives nouns It s worth noting that among her gifts, Eisenberg has a knack for titles they re thought provoking and ambiguous, and as inherent a part of the writing as the content itself The synthetic quality of her writing does make me crazy the ohs and the buts crammed into obtuse places, the attempt to imitate specific dialects which fail miserably in writing, the millions of words in italics, the dialogue where the character dwindles off, and apparently you re supposed to understand what they mean to say, but you don t I don t think Eisenberg is an author who writes with ease Eisenberg tends to write about the middle class, sometimes the upper class, and often her characters annoy me What are they getting hysterical about And many of the situations don t justify the dark mental places Eis...

    The characters of Airborne suffer repercussions of ignorance At an individual level, this ignorance in the young, kindly called naivete can be as small in scope as personal unease Eisenberg, however, conveys the gravity of adolescent pain with the skill of the best young adult fiction authors At its worst, this ignorance is global, and the repercussions both political and personal can include death but Eisenberg is sneaky, only hinting at devastation of this magnitude in the background the protagonist s foolishness keeps the narrative focus Every agony shares a subtle but equal weight here, though the subjects in the stories run the gamut from slavery, racism and revolution, to petty drug dealing in LA, a teacher seducing an underaged neighbor, and the angst of trying to make it in New York while burdened by an acquaintance s boyfriend who s been dumped on you This last is the plot of A Cautionary Tale, the first story in the anthology, which threw me somewhat, because it is has a levity absent the rest of the book The second story, which shares the title of the collection, is a 180 from the first, and sets the tone of underlying danger for the remainder of the book It follows a petty actre...

    An exceptional collection of short stories by one of the finest short story writers I have ever read I saw Eisenberg read from her latest collection of stories at the 92nd street Y toward the end of the year, I was at the reading to hear Gary Shteyngart but based on the reading I decided to read some of Eisenberg s stories This book Under the 82nd Airborne was written in the early 1990 s it consists of 7 stories set in a variety of locations and all of them are relatively lengthy I have decided to provide a brief summary of each story to allow me to remember these stories in the future All of these stories are uniformly excellent and the characters are memorable and the situations utterly realistic Eisenberg also writes beautifully and crafts many a memorable sentence.A Cautionary Tale Depicts the struggles of a disparate group of New Yorkers who are struggling financially and emotionally to make ends meet while living in the same apartment building.Under the 82nd Airborne occurs principally in Honduras where a down on her luck divorcee Caitlin travels to visit her semi estranged daughter and the daughter s bo...

    Eisenberg s second collection of short stories, the six called Under the 82nd Airborne, are a welcome addition to her work, though they can seem somewhat less focused than those in her first collection In addition, her stories sometimes exhibit a certain lack of place it isn t exactly clear where they transpire Reflecting the...

    Disappointing What was consistent about this book is I disliked almost all the stories and absolutely disliked just about everyone in them Then, to my surprise, I loved the fifth one of six Holy week Some of the writing is good, except for In the Station which was startlingly inept, littered with purple prose like Poison squirted into her veins A lot of sad and so...

    Fails in some ways to build upon the promise of TIAFC Variety seems to come from the wrong places, less exciting, a bit repetitive Still quality writing but didn t blow my mind like the first collection.

    my first reading of this author and I found the stories not quite as interesting as I had hoped after reading a rave review of her newest work.

    These stories are pretty good, and people can relate to them Most of us have moved to New York City at some point in our lives, and a good portion have confronted ourselves through encounters with dusty, silent, indigenous people ruthless right wing death squads in vaguely Nicaraguan type countries Right Actually, I eventually got bored with these stories The first three were really good, the fourth was enjoyable, but after that my gnat like attention started to wane The Custodian was so boring I couldn t get through it okay, I probably could ve, but I didn t Holy Week had its moments, but generally did not do much for me, and had a lot of problems By the time I got to the last one, I was like, Oh crap, they re back in Latin America can I read this later And I might Also, she s one of those short story writers whose choice of names I always find inappropriately distracting Or in some cases, distractingly inappropriate Deborah Eisenberg is a very good writer, though You might start getting a little antsy and cynical, and she will slap you back in line with some breathtaking, floating sentence that is simultaneously a beautiful and exhilarating and b sad and which will make the story you are reading seem c delightfully artificial, by heightening your awareness that you are reading a carefully crafted work of Short Fiction but also d weirdly, inexplicably real.This one s out of print which is too bad, as it has...
