Here are all Grace Paley's classic stories in one volume. From her first book THE LITTLE DISTURBANCES OF MAN (1959), to ENORMOUS CHANGES AT THE LAST MINUTE (1974) and LATER THE SAME DAY (1985), Grace Paley's quirky, boisterous characters and rich use of language have won her readers' hearts and secured her place as one of America's most accomplished short story writers. Her stories are united by her signature interweaving of personal and political truths, her extraordinary capacity for empathy and her pointed depiction of the small and large events that make up daily life.

Books By Author Grace Paley

Nights in the Gardens of Brooklyn by Grace Paley Nights in the Gardens of Brooklyn, Paperback (May 2007)

Harvey Swados devoted himself to the concerns of ordinary people and pays tribute to them here in a naturalistic and controlled style that bears comparison to Cheever and Bellow.

Here and Somewhere Else by Grace Paley Here and Somewhere Else, Paperback (March 2007)

Presents a collection of juxtaposing stories and poems, revealing their comparisons while validating the truth that artists can write politically in many different ways. This book contains stories rooted in New York City and rural Vermont, yet the world outside constantly intrudes with its problems, its demands, and its crises.

Apples from the Desert by Grace Paley Apples from the Desert, Paperback (July 1998)

This collection of stories offers a broad panorama of contemporary Israeli society that reveals the passionate and intense layers underneath ordinary lives of people from different ethnic backgrounds. The stories concern Arab-Israeli relations from a woman's view.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Forty-five little treats. Paley is not prolific - she has published fewer than 400 pages in 39 years, putting her life into politics and not into prose. 'Art is too long,' she has said, 'and life is too short for just writing.' But, despite this modesty, every single one of the 45 stories collected here is a jewel. Her reveries, mostly set in shabby New York neighbourhoods, have that knack of seeming inconsequential, of reading like backstairs gossip and posing as idle vignettes, while surreptitiously evangelizing the glorious richness of the world. Just writing? Review by JIM CRACE. Editor's note: Jim Crace's books include Quarantine and Being Dead. (Kirkus UK)
