Unputdownable . . . [The End of the Story] freed me from the preconceptions I had then about the way novels were supposed to work . . . it deals with the heat and the thirst of infatuation, the desperation to find an end to the torment when a desired object won't reciprocate
*Observer, 'Summer Reads 2023'*

Can't and Won't is the most revolutionary collection of stories by an American in twenty-five years
*Boston Globe*

Lydia Davis's short stories are perfected economies, witty devices, precision-made, primed to release intelligence, philosophy, hilarity. They celebrate the thinking universe while they redefine the possibilities of the form. There is no other writer quite like her
*Ali Smith*

Davis is a high priestess of the startling, telling detail. . . one of the best writers in America
*Daily Telegraph*

Her work is exquisite, finely wrought and devastating. . . Read her now!
*A. M. Homes*


Breathtakingly elegant

*New Yorker*
