Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

    This first collaboration of two long-time feminist and antiwar activists is a wonderful melding of word and image that creates a powerful call for world peace. Paley's poems and short fiction and William's vivid watercolors depict the beauty and dignity of "ordinary" lives from El Salvador to the Bronx, from New Hampshire to Vietnam. Scenes and stories of domestic life, solitude, and nature are interspersed with heart-wrenching images of women widowed and children crippled by war and incarcerated by urban poverty, Here, too, are stories and paintings of protest, joyous and defiant.

Synopsis:

Originally published in part as a calendar to benefit the War Resisters League, this gorgeously packaged book provides 365 reasons not to have another war. Paley's poems and short fiction--including material published here for the first time--are perfectly complemented by Williams' 30 vivid watercolors.
