Can’t and Won’t : Stories. Author(s): Davis, Lydia ISBN: 9781250062437 Format: Paperback Year: 201503


Short stories. This is what the best and most original literature can do: make us more acutely aware of life on and off the page.”- Peter Orner, The New York Times Book Review Lydia Davis switches between elegy and comedy, surrealism and the quotidian, perplexity and epiphany: reading one Davis story tells you nothing about what the next story might be like . Her work, in so many ways, is not about altering what literature is, but trying (and failing) and failing (and trying) to capture what being human is.” -Stuart Kelly, The Scotsman “Among the true originals of contemporary American short fiction.” – San Francisco Chronicle
