Deborah Eisenberg’s The Collected Stories of Deborah Eisenberg has won this year’s PEN/Faulkner. I have the lovely, large books, and think it is a deserving winner. Long live the short story!

It doesn’t hurt, in my estimation, that Eisenberg’s long-time companion is Wallace Shawn (whose father was long-time editor of The New Yorker).
