Not a word to much, the essence of a storie,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis (Paperback)
I love literature, am a big fan of books, and learned Lydia Davis when she won the Man Booker International Prize. The critics gave a few examples of her short stories and I was immediately won for her style: the example of "a thing" that happens, probably you can fill pages with it, and Lydia just get's it together in a few lines: something happened, for a moment there was chaos and panic, but then the people came back to reality. Something like that, with more words, but every word is necesarry, no word to much, no word missing, everything exact as it should be. The perfection !!!!! Incredible. Read her stories.
