Mislabeled boxes, problems with visiting nurses, confusing notes, an outing to the county fair--such are the obstacles in the way of the unnamed narrator of The End of the Story as she attempts to organize her memories of a love affair into a novel. With compassion, wit, and what appears to be candor, she seeks to determine what she actually knows about herself and her past, but we begin to suspect, along with her, that given the elusiveness of memory and understanding, any tale retrieved from the past must be fiction.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Lydia DavisPublisher: Picador USAPublished: 07/01/2004ISBN: 9780312423711Pages: 231Weight: 0.50lbsSize: 8.20h x 5.40w x 0.90d
