Although Deborah Eisenberg is a master of the short story form, this 2018 collection was her first in 12 years, and it was a not surprisingly a finalist for the prestigious Story Prize. In tones ranging from solemn to hilarious, each of the six stories has the heft and complexity of a novel. Here Eisenberg follows the exploits of a tormented woman whose face determines her destiny; a group of film actors shocked to read a book about their past; and a privileged young man who unexpectedly falls into a love affair with a human rights worker caught up in an all-consuming quest that he doesn't understand.
