Biography

Lydia Davis is the author of one novel and seven story collections, one of which was a finalist for the 2007 National Book Award. She is the recipient of a MacArthur fellowship and was named a Chevalier of the Order of the Arts and Letters by the French government for her fiction and her translations of modern writers, including Maurice Blanchot, Michel Leiris, and Marcel Proust. Lydia Davis has been called “an American virtuoso of the short story form” (Salon) and “one of the quiet giants . . . of American fiction” (Los Angeles Times Book Review). Davis recently released The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis, which includes stories from the groundbreaking Break It Down (1986) to the 2007 National Book Award nominee Varieties of Disturbance.
