This reissue of Grace Paley’s classic stories—a finalist for the National Book Award—demonstrates both her rich use of language as well as her extraordinary insight and compassion for her characters, moving from the hilarious to the tragic and back again in the blink of an eye. Whether writing about the love (and conflict) between parents and children or between husband and wife, or about the struggles of aging single mothers or disheartened political organizers to make sense of the world, she brings the same unerring ear for the rhythm of life and for the emotions of all those trying to steady their hearts and minds to its inconsistent beat.
