Jacob de Zoet is still with me, but I’ve also started dipping into The Collected Stories of Deborah Eisenberg. I could approach it any which way, but so far I’ve been sticking to the order assigned by each individual collection in the book, as well as the chronological arrangement of the collections. I’m interested to see how her writing changes over the collection. The heft of this book is intimidating — what a lot of impressive stories! Plus I find the name “Deborah” always make me a little nervous.
