5.0 out of 5 stars funny, poetic, disturbing, truthful, memorable
Some of these stories are poems, some jokes, all are serious, intelligent and interesting, and they could all only have been written by Lydia Davis. With Anne Carson, she's the best experimental cross-genre writer in English, and hugely enjoyable.

Some very interesting takes on short-story writing here. Gave me lots to think about and hopefully use in my own writing.

1.0 out of 5 stars How is it possible?, 1 May 2014

This review is from: Can't and Won't (Hardcover)
It is a very badly written book. I don't understand how the author could receive so many good reviews. Her book on Cows is even worse, sorry to say!
