Deborah Eisenberg currently leads the trifecta of female short story writers composed of herself, Alice Munro, and Lorrie Moore. These three authors are the most lauded, the most commented on, and the bestsellers of a genre that rarely creates blockbuster hits. There are other strong female short story writers today whose books receive worthy acclaim, such as works by the Annes: Anne Tyler, Annie Proulx, Anne Beattie, and people such as Jayne Anne Phillips or the logorific Joyce Carol Oates, but there is the general sense of short story writing belonging to the New Yorker and the trifecta.
