Actor Jesse Eisenberg is probably best known for his Oscar-nominated performance as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in the 2010 film, "The Social Network."

The movie put Eisenberg in the spotlight as an actor, but he's also been writing plays and short stories for years.

He's out with his first book of fiction called, "Bream Gives Me Hiccups: And Other Stories." He spoke with Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti on Radio Boston earlier this month.
