Winning the 2013 Man Booker International Prize for her body of work, Lydia Davis again proves her mastery of brief, hyper-condensed fiction with this collection of 121 tales, writing about seemingly simple things to reveal the mysterious, the foreign, and the pleasurable within the patterns of daily life. Praised by the Boston Globe as "the most revolutionary collection of stories by an American in 25 years," here are dreams, fleeting conversations, letters of complaint, even extracts from Flaubert's correspondence, as well as lengthier explorations; in "A Small Story About a Small Box of Chocolates," for example, a professor receives 32 chocolates, and is paralyzed by the multitude of options she imagines for their consumption.
