Sketches for a Life of Wassily
Lydia Davis has created in Sketches for a Life of Wassily a moving portrait of the doomed dreamer. This is a small chapbook printing this single story. Davis is a 2003 MacArthur Fellow, as well as one of the mainstay writers of McSweeney's, perhaps the defining organ of the literary avant garde in this country at present. This is the issue in wrappers, with brown endpapers.
