EW's GRADE
B+

Details Writer: Deborah Eisenberg; Genres: Fiction, Short Stories; Publisher: Farrar, Straus & Giroux

Of all the writers who invaded the chic Manhattan territory populated by earnestly jaded middle-class bohemians during the '80s, Deborah Eisenberg was the thorniest. In the collection of stories that comprise Under the 82nd Airborne, she darts in and out of New York, gathering her baffled, writhing, neatly impaled specimens. B+
