Deborah Eisenberg is a Finalist for the PEN/Faulkner

Huge congratulations to Deborah Eisenberg whose anthology, THE COLLECTED STORIES OF DEBORAH EISENBERG, has been named a finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction!

Eisenberg's stories have long been admired for their exceptional language and nuanced evocation of thought and emotion. In story after story, the dialogue is crisp, idiosyncratic, and revelatory, yet what is frequently revealed is, as Jean Thompson for the New York Times puts it, "her characters’ well rendered and profound unease at inhabiting an uneasy world."

Pen Faulkner AwardTHE COLLECTED STORIES OF DEBORAH EISENBERG combines four volumes of Eisenberg's work: "Transactions in a Foreign Currency," "Under the 82nd Airborne," "All Around Atlantis," and "Twilight of the Superheroes," which was a PEN/Faulkner Finalist in 2007.
