This review is from: The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis (Paperback)
Lydia Davis has a unique set of styles. Repetition plays a large part in her writings and indeed repetition plays a large part in her writings. One-liners, tomes, one-pagers, paragraphs and sentences all pass as stories. The incredible thing is that it works and is a very powerful tool when applied by such a talented writer. If you do nothing else this year, buy this collection and throw away your prejudices and preferences, then just read.
