I read this for grad school. It's fine. It's the kind of book you read for grad school. We share a birthday but she's more Rembrandt than Roky Erickson. ( )

Caratterizzati dalla brevità delle flash fiction e spesso paragonabili a monologhi filosofici, i suoi racconti sono stati premiati nel 2013 con il Man Booker International Prize

Lydia Davis is a genius! The first three books in this collection; Break It Down, Almost No Memory, Samuel Johnson is Indignant, were wonderful. However the final book, Varieties of Disturbance, while good, felt more forced and less natural to me. However, her writing is concise, insightful, and beautiful in all four books collected here.
I highly recommend this book! I'm giving the book 4.5 stars out of 5. ( )

So now I have read all four of the individual books collected in the big orange volume. Several of these last stories were a bit different from the others--more of them were more like exercises in sociological inquiry or "studies" of human behaviour, interesting but . . . are they stories? Well, who cares, why not! What came into my mind was a study of Shakespeare's wife written by Germaine Greer -- the information about who she "really" was has to be gleaned from skimpy records of, say people with licenses to brew beer (she did), who inherited the "best bed" (she didn't) -- a picture does emerge but it is built as much on one's own ideas as the facts presented. The point, in other words! When Davis is at her best she is like a terrier pulling the squeaker out of a toy, intent and thorough, she'll take a behaviour apart until you cry uncle -- the best in this collection for me was the piece on what she learned from the baby. I do think even a non-short story reader might find Davis rewarding although I might be mad to think so. One of her stories has inspired me to take my mother's letters (I've kept about fifty) to read through and catalogue aspects of -- as a way to see what emerges, what might come through the whole and reveal more about who she was. I think Davis is extraordinary, original, funny, wise and humble. ***** ( )

Many of these "stories" are more like short observations and, to me, not very special ones at that. A few do make you smile, most leave me indifferent. Not my cup of tea. ( )

Davis approaches the short-story form with jazzy experimentation, tinkering with lists, circumlocutions, even interviews where the questions have been creepily edited out. You don’t work your way across this mesa-sized collection so much as pogo-stick about, plunging in wherever the springs meet the page.
 
With the publication of this big book... Davis might well receive the kind of notice she's long been due. She is the funniest writer I know; the unique pleasure of her wit resides in its being both mordant and beautifully sorrowful

I kept tripping on the street and walking into walls. Everything I said made me want to laugh. But near the end of the hour I was also telling him how face-to-face with another person I couldn't speak. There was always a wall. "Is there a wall between you and me now?" he would ask. No, there was no wall there anymore.
