Review: Can’t and Won’t: Stories

Can't and Won't: Stories
Can’t and Won’t: Stories by Lydia Davis
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

These are very short stories. I did enjoy quite a few of them. They are wry, and humorous, and I like their style. They’re just too short to hold my attention, if that makes any sense.

My favorite (understanding that I did not read them all) is “The Bad Novel” (p. 25), which is about conscientiously carrying around a book you don’t really like, thinking you’ll get in a groove and enjoy it, but you don’t.
