Samuel Johnson Is Indignant: Stories by Lydia Davis
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
These extremely short stories are certainly well crafted, and Davis has a bone-dry wit. But few of these selections engaged me. I felt like I was reading an author's exercises in minimalism instead of anything with a point to make about the human condition, "Letter to a Funeral Parlor" being one of the few exceptions.
