Translator, short story writer, and novelist Lydia Davis is the author of nine books of fiction, most recently The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis. She has been a finalist for the National Book Award and the PEN/Hemingway Award, and she is the recipient of a MacArthur Foundation “genius” fellowship. Her translation of Marcel Proust’s Swann’s Way was published in 2003 to great acclaim. Writing in The New York Review of Books, the critic Dan Chiasson says of her collected stories, “Davis has made one of the great books in recent literature, equal parts horse sense and heartache.”
