Each of the six stories in Your Duck is My Duck, Eisenberg's first collection since 2006, has the heft and complexity of a novel. With her own inexorable but utterly unpredictable logic and her almost uncanny ability to conjure the strange states of mind and emotion that constitute our daily consciousness, Eisenberg pulls us as if by gossamer threads through her characters--a tormented woman whose face determines her destiny; a group of film actors shocked to read a book about their past; 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.

This collection of short stories took a bit of dedication. The story lines weren't necessarily direct or wow inspiring. With some diligence it does pay off.

A rich and complex short story collection. The stories are hard to classify. I liked them, and I liked the book, but I would be hard pressed to describe the stories to you. Well, actually, the one that stuck with me was dystopian. It seemed to be about language, and included a society where doctors worked to remove the ability to free associate one word with a myriad of other words. Yeah, that's not a pretty place to live if you're someone who makes a living writing books. Perhaps that's where we're headed in this dystopian reality.
