To fans of the short story, the name Edith Pearlman is already revered. Over the past four decades, the Brookline-based writer has published more than 250 stories, in magazines ranging from the Atlantic to Ecotone. Her work appears regularly in the Best American Short Story and O. Henry anthologies, and her three previous collections have garnered numerous awards. But it wasn't until last month's release of Binocular Vision, a collected on new and selected stories, that Pearlman burst into prominence. The collection was lavishly praised on the cover of the New York Times Book Review, and in the LA Times. Her work is now being compared to such masters of the form as Alice Munro, John Updike, and Deborah Eisenberg.
