2013 Man Booker International Prize awarded to Lydia Davis

American short story writer LydiaDavis won the fifth Man Booker International Prize for fictionon Wednesday for a body of work that includes some of thebriefest tales ever published.

"Her writings fling their lithe arms wide to embrace many a kind. Just how to categorise them? They have been called stories but could equally be miniatures, anecdotes, essays, jokes, parables, fables,texts, aphorisms or even apophthegms, prayers or simply observations." 

Personally, I feel very inspired because as a writer I love brevity and hate being categorised.
