Short Stories is a collection of three miniature songs for soprano and small ensemble on texts by the American author Lydia Davis (1947). The collection consists of the following titles:
2. The Busy Road
3. The Fly
Davis is well known for her extremely brief short stories. Her work falls somewhere between prose and poetry. Like the texts, the music is concise yet vibrant; light-hearted yet a little disturbing.
