Summary
A much-anticipated collection of uncannily observant short stories from one of the great American masters of the form Deborah Eisenberg's brutally funny, unsettling, and shrewdly perceptive stories have been captivating readers for decades. Exquisitely distilled meditations on the state of the Western world and the course of individual lives, they combine uneasiness, a magical glimmer, and comedy, in a manner that is uniquely candid and profoundly moving. In Your Duck is My Duck, her first new collection since 2006, Eisenberg presents us with characters swimming or drowning in a disintegrating environment - among them, some former Hollywood actors, an entitled young man who falls into an unlikely love affair with a human rights worker on a mysterious quest, a woman whose face illustrates her family's history, a girl receiving treatment for an inexplicable psychological affliction, and a politically conscious puppeteer. With her finely tuned ear for dialogue and description, Eisenberg is at her pitch-perfect best in this fascinating collection, her deepest and most adventurous work yet
