Lydia Davis's picture

Lydia Davis

USA flag (1947 - )

Lydia Davis is one of our most original and influential writers, a storyteller celebrated for her inventiveness, and her ability to capture the mind in overdrive. She has been called "an American virtuoso of the short story form" (Salon) and "one of the quiet giants . . . of American fiction" (Los Angeles Times Book Review).
Lydia Davis recommends
Floats Horse-floats Or Horse-flows (2010)
Leslie Scalapino
"Leslie Scalapino's writing reveals how language - and therefore thought itself - can go beyond what we are accustomed to, and the forms in which she writes delightfully defy our expectations. Yet her work is infused with a seriousness, a passion, a timeliness, and an intelligence with which we profoundly identify."
