The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis - Lydia Davis

I haven't finished this book-- it lives next to my bed, migrates throughout the house.  Davis is the master of the microstory, of the changing narrative style, of the one-sentence punch to the chest. 

 

Every time I think I know her voice, it changes.

 

Every time I think what POV she's going to come front, she changes it up.  

 

I probably will never finish this book-- because if I ever make it through all of these stories, re-reading them will teach me something utterly new.
