A Close Look at Lydia Davis's "The Mice" (1 Viewer)

My essay on Lydia Davis' flash fiction, "The Mice," went online yesterday (Oct. 21, 2021). I consider Lydia Davis one of the best writers of flash fiction (and related forms). Some call her a "writer's writer" because many turn to her to learn how to write these so often memorable short pieces. (I have three of her large collections already, that's how much I love her interesting work.) She so often manages to go beyond surface details into realms worth thinking about. Hope you enjoy her story and my close look at it.
