Grace Paley (1922-2007)

A literary light is extinguished.

If you haven't read Grace Paley, I recommend starting with Enormous Changes at the Last Minute. One of the best collection of short stories in the last half of the 20th century.

Thanks, Lit Kitten:
I've never read any Paley, and I would like to, so your recommendation is very helpful. And what a great title!

Isn't that sad news? I got to see her speak once. She was a fantastic woman and an amazing writer.

So sad, I love her stories.

I've not read her work before, so thank you for the rec. I'll jump right on that.

Kate chose one of her stories over at A Curious Singularity and I have to say I'm a new fan. I'll have to explore more of her work in time.
