Publisher Comments:

Here are all of Grace Paley's classic stories collected in one volume. Her quirky, boisterous characters and rich use of language have won her readers' hearts and secured her place as one of America's most accomplished writers of short fiction.

About the Author

Grace Paley was born the daughter of Russian immigrants in the Bronx, New York, in 1922. Her short stories and essays have appeared in The New Yorker, Esquire, and The Atlantic Monthly, among other publications. Her highly acclaimed collections of stories include The Little Disturbances of Man (1959), Enormous Changes at the Last Minute (1974), Later the Same Day (1985), and The Collected Stories (1994), which won the National Book Award. She is also the author of two books of poetry, Leaning Forward (1985) and Begin Again(1992), and one collection of poems and prose pieces, Long Walks and Intimate Talks (1991). She has taught at Sarah Lawrence, Columbia, Dartmouth, and City College, and is a popular lecturer and workshop leader at colleges and universities. Included among her awards and honors are a 1997 Lannan Literary Award for Fiction; the 1994 National Book Award for Fiction; the 1993 Vermont Award for Excellence in the Arts; the 1992 REA award for Short Stories; and the 1989 Edith Wharton Award. In 1989 she was honored at a ceremony in Albany, New York, by then Governor Mario Cuomo, who declared her the first official New York State Writer. She now divides her time between New York City and Thetford Hill, Vermont.
