I didn't love all of these stories, but I truly appreciated each one. There's a lot of variety in this collection, but each piece examines themes of privilege, memory, ethics, and heartbreak in a fresh way.

These stories are a bit on the long side (lookin' at you, Merge), almost novella length, but Eisenberg's ability to construct fulfilling characters with her subtly political, weird, and quirky style is unparalleled.

Favorites: Your Duck is My Duck, Taj Mahal, and Merge.

Eisenberg's short stories deal with complicated families at various stages of their cycles, with the underlying threat of historical events like 9/11 or the Gulf War. Quite an interesting collection of stories.

Meer dan de helft van de verhalen zijn juweeltjes. Moeilijk lezen.
