I read this in the March 2010 issue of Harper’s. The story consists of six small vignettes titled, The Cornmeal, Dinner, The Dog Hair, The Language of the Telephone Company, The Song, and The Party. I couldn’t see how they related. I assume it’s the same narrator, but each piece is disjointed enough that it’s hard to tell. If you’re interested in Lydia Davis, read this interview or check out the review of her latest work, Collected Stories.
