Lydia Davis


USA flag (b.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
thumb
I Hear You're Rich (2023)
Diane Williams
"One of the very few contemporary prose writers who seem to be doing something independent, energetic, heartfelt."
thumb
Unquiet (2019)
Linn Ullmann
"Unquiet is a wonderfully absorbing and moving family story told with a directness, naturalness, and grace that can only result from Linn Ullmann’s close attention to the eloquent details of day-to-day life, her honest embrace of herself and the people close to her, and a keen sensitivity to language and the high demands of good writing."
