I also don't get Deborah Eisenberg. I've read her short story collection "Under the 82nd Airborne" and others. Some of her paragraphs are very well constructed and her prose is interesting, but at the end of each story, I felt a bit...
Like, was that it? Is that all?
And after a couple weeks, I've totally forgotten what she wrote. So, I don't quite get the appeal. Plus, she has way too much dialogue for my taste.
And that's the thing about this literature business. It's all subjective, it's all about taste. It's so warped that a cruddy writer like __________ (rhymes with Stan Clown) can earn millions while a really good writer like, say, Louise Erdrich, has to run a bookstore. (I don't really know what her personal financial worth is, btw)
