1 Eisner, William Done in by Innocent Things
Pine Bush, New York, U.S.A. Greycore Pr 2002 0967185165 / 9780967185163 First Edition Hardcover New in New dust jacket 6" x 9" Signed by Author
New, unread, unmarked. By the author of The Sevigne Letters. "Elegant and literate" -Los Angeles Times. Signed by author. The novella, Heist, and twelve other short stories make up this book. Using themes as diverse as love, eternal youth, middle-aged crises and sex, Eisner has written remarkable short stories that are literate and full of spark and wit. Heist tells the story of thirty something Ron Klein, an accountant who has become disillusioned with his life. From his office window, he watches the guards from an armored car carrying the money sacks out to the truck from the bank and in true Walter Mitty-like fashion daydreams of robbing them and spending the rest of his days in Paris. His thoughts soon become an obsession and, at a prison which he audits, he gets to know a convict who will help him make his dream come true. Along the way, Klein learns more about himself and what he truly wants as the robbery becomes a reality. Author Eisner's short stories reveal a myriad of characters rich in detail and nuances, such as the husband in the story, Arthur, who deals with his wife's latter stages of Alzheimer's, or the young girl in The Philosopher who romanticizes about her mentor/boss and discovers things aren't quite what they seem, or the 70ish man in The Fountain of Youth who discovers that sex with a young Chinese woman restores his vitality.; Signed by Author
