Abstract:

Presents a collection of short stories that portray contemporary American life.

Since 1986, with the publication of her first story collection, Deborah Eisenberg has devoted herself to writing "equisitely distilled stories" that "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).
