Deborah Eisenberg makes me want to get my MFA

Posted by Jason Diamond

You know all those debates about why you should or should not get your MFA that all sound really insider baseballish?  Deborah Eisenberg joining the faculty of the writing program at Columbia University definitely adds to the “you should” school of thought.

Hell, I’ve never given much consideration to going for my MFA, but the idea of Deborah Eisenberg taking a liking to me, and inviting me over to have dinner with her and Wallace Shawn is a dream I’ve held tight to for a very long time.
