Summary ¸ The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis 108 Tensão dramática necessária; há muitos animais – gatos cães ratos peixes baratas lagartas moscas ue surgem em vários lugares como atores de uma estranha diversão num universo simultaneamente familiar e misterioso»Helena Vasconcelos Públic. Lydia Davis is certainly different and i can t say i d read anything uite like this except in terms of brevity up until this collection i can t say i adored it though or even that i really liked most of what was here four story collections are combined Break it down 1986 Almost No Memory 1997 Samuel Johnson is Indignant 2001 and Varieties of Disturbance 2007 and i want to say as a new reader of hers i probably did her a disservice by reading her in this fashion in a complete collection as the stories she writes would be palatable if i had an Lydia Davis rss feed and was prescribed just one a day Reading over some reviews when i was about halfway through break it down made it clear to me I didn t stand a chance of appreciating any of her work by plowing through a collection like this so i stopped reading it for a while and then came back to it chipping away at the collection bit by bit once i did i m afraid i didn t enjoy these stories much than i did initially while some of it is really poetic and lovely a lot of it reminded me of algebraic math problems in cadence and structure or circular spiral repetitive constructions like thisIf she had a husband she would sit out on the lawn with her husband She hoped she would have a husband by then Or still have one She had once had a husband and she wasn t surprised she had once had one didn t have one now and hoped to have one later in life from What an Old Woman Will Wear Break it DownHenry encounters Jack on the street and asks how his weekend with Laura was Jack says he hasn t spoken to Laura in at least a month Henry is angry He thinks Ellen has been lying to him about Laura Ellen says she has been telling the truth Laura told her over the phone that Jack was coming for the weekend to her house up there in the country Henry is still angry but now he is angry because he thinks Laura was lying to Ellen when she told her Jack was coming up for the weekend At this point with embarrassment Ellen realizes her mistake than one Jack is involved here Laura said only that Jack was coming to visit her for the weekend and it was not the Jack that Ellen and Henry know but the Jack that only Ellen knows and only slightly who was about to arrive at Laura s house in the country from Jack in the Country Almost No Memoryi really didn t like the stories like this and there were a lot of them they seem to recur through all of the collections and i ve taken to calling them in my head typical Lydia Davis As i glance through the TOC i find it difficult to remember individual stories by their names but there are some i really liked like The House Plans The Cedar Trees Mr Knockly in the two early collections i liked The Furnace a lot in the third collection but i was most taken by stories in the last collection Varieties of Disturbance Kafka Cooks Dinner Television Mrs D and her maids and especially the experimental beckett echo Southward Bound Reads Worstward Hoi m giving it three stars for the selection of stories i liked and the fact that i m aware of what a good writer she is even when i really don t like what she s doing all of these stories are impeccably crafted and i m grateful for her innovation i m glad i read Lydia Davis but i think i am done with her unless somebody shoots me that rss feed okay i actually can t stick with the three stars because i just really didn t like so many of the other stories SO MANY so two stars as i probably really liked ten percent of the stories here
