Enormous changes at the last minute, stories

Creator: Grace Paley | Fiction - 1974-06-01

Seventeen stories written over the past fifteen years reveal the author's vision of human love and tragedy

Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux

About this book
In this collection of short stories, originally published in 1974, Grace Paley "makes the novel as a form seem virtually redundant" (Angela Carter, London Review of Books). Her stories here capture "the itch of the city, love between parents and children" and "the cutting edge of combat" (Lis Harris, The New York Times Book Review). In this collection of seventeen stories, she creates a "solid and vital fictional world, cross-referenced and dense with life" (Walter Clemons, Newsweek). Grace Paley, born in 1922, is well known as a poet, feminist, writer, and antiwar activist. In 1994, her Collected Stories was a finalist for the National Book Award. She received The Rea Award for the Short Story in 1993 and in 2005, she received the Sarah Josepha Hale Award in recognition for her work in the field of literature and letters.  She died in 2007. In this collection of short stories, originally published in 1974, Grace Paley "makes the novel as a form seem virtually redundant" (Angela Carter, London Review of Books).

In this collection of seventeen stories, she creates a "solid and vital fictional world, cross-referenced and dense with life" (Walter Clemons, Newsweek). "Grace Paley makes me weep and laugh-and admire. She is that rare kind of writer, a natural, with a voice like no one else's: funny, sad, lean, modest, energetic, acute."—Susan Sontag"Grace Paley is a wonderful writer and troublemaker. We are fortunate to have her in our country."—Donald Barthelme"I can't think of another writer who captures the itch of the city, love between parents and children, or the cutting edge of combat, as well."—Lis Harris, The New York Times Book Review"Technically, Grace Paley's work makes the novel as a form seem virtually redundant. Each one of her stories has more abundant inner life than most other people's novels . . . Her prose presents a series of miracles of poetic compression."—Angela Carter, London Review of Books"A solid and vital fictional world, cross-referenced and dense with life."—Walter Clemons, Newsweek

    A great Gift Book

    This is a beautifully presented book, it was a real treat to open it up with it's eau-de-nil facing pages and quality paper. It would be a beautiful gift itself!The book opens with the assumption that the reader already knows something about knitting but does cover such basic ground as gauge, equipment, and yarn types. It does this is in a concise but complete enough way. Then there is an extensive section on colour that manages to cover the basics in a non- condescending way and add some useful takeouts such as suggesting that we twine yarns together to see how they look rather than just hold the skeins adjacent....and colour really is Hoverson's thing - you can tell this even without being aware of her background as a fine arts student and stylist. The colours and photographs are stunning. Probably my favourite is some fluorescent, fuzzy, red bootees on a citrussy background - stunning combo.The patterns are grouped into sections based on how many... 4/5 Sally Holloway "By The Bay" (New Zealand) - See all my reviews, November 13, 2004

    Gorgeous book, beautiful results, but...

    I should start by saying I adore this book. The patterns are universally tasteful, unique, and gorgeous. Your friends and family would be thrilled if you made any item from this book. Another reviewer said color is Joelle's thing, and that is true. As far as color and design go, the book is truly inspiring.That said, I can see two areas for improvement that prevented me from giving a 5-star rating: First, the photography, while beautiful, is sometimes less than helpful for the knitter. Sometimes items are shot in such isolation that it's difficult to envision them on someone, sometimes there are no shots of the whole garment laid out so that you can see the final shape. Sometimes shots are not of the whole item at all, even if they are modeled.Second, there are quite a few mistakes in the patterns. Joelle has posted all the pattern corrections on the Purl website, though, so as long as you're aware of them it's no problem. You can find the corrections... 4/5 J. Kaufman "guessica" (Brooklyn, NY United States) - See all my reviews, January 12, 2005

    Beautiful but flawed...

    Like some other readers, I found this book visually enticing--but when I went to use it, the flaws became more apparent.There do seem to be some problems with the pattern directions--I am an intermediate knitter, and so I could catch some of them, but other patterns just left me flummoxed. I'm also not a super-fast knitter, so most of the time estimates were way too low for me--a three-hour project might take me six, for instance.Another problem for people at all levels is that most of the patterns use luxury yarns, and some are used in quantities that are far too expensive for the sort of quick pick-up gifts this book purports to offer. Substitutions aren't always easy to make unless you are sufficiently experienced to figure out gauges and yardage--or have access to a yarn store with helpful personnel willing to figure it out for you.That said, there are some gems in this collection: the pashmina cowl (which I made with a less expensive but still... 3/5 Aviva N.

    I really liked reading this book

    0 5/5 Daniel Sullivan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Last-Minute Recipes: 24 Quick Appetizers & No-Fuss Dinner Recipes (Kindle Edition) I really liked reading this book. I am not very fond of cooking and I am that person who just sits around whenever people in the house cook their specialties. I must say that I am now interested to create my own specialty upon reading this cookbook. It provides easy steps to follow and also indicates health benefits of each recipe. I tried one recipe already. I made delicious chicken empanadas and I am looking forward to making more yummy foods. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 14, 2015

    Deserves Ten Stars

    0 5/5 Sandra H. Elston "Sugar" (Spokane, WA USA) - See all my reviews, August 16, 2010

    Inspired

    I adored Joelle Hoverson's first book and had hoped she'd do another.... The first noticeable thing about the book is the photography - it's beautiful! Well worth the price of the book as a "coffee-table" knitting book. Props to Anna Williams.She organized the chapters by the typical length of time it would take to complete a project: less than two hour gifts, 2-4 hours, 4-6 and onward. For gifts, this is perfect, nothing worse that thinking a a gift will take 2 hours only to find yourself on the clock for 4 hours and only half way through (sometimes project length is deceptive). Plus a chapter on simple, but clever gift wrapping ideas using yarn. And there are a few pages dedicated to specific stitches & finishing techniques- note there is not a "basics section"- you'll have to pick up knitting basics elsewhere.Hoverson stretches the gammet of projects - baby & adult socks, cowls, sweaters, vests, accessories, wrist warmers, blanket, scarves... pretty much... 5/5 Stacey M Smith (Fredericksburg, TEXAS) - See all my reviews, August 19, 2010

    Some projects great...others are not

    This book really has some pretty photos. I have completed two projects so far: Baby Bonnet, and Soft Baskets. I am currently knitting the easy baby cardigan. I'd say that I am an intermediate, but definately not an advanced knitter. The Baby Bonnet is darling to look at, but has a funny fit when you put it on the child. Also, I may be a loose knitter, but I knit the hat with the needles and yarn recommended and the hat was huge on my 8 month old, so I had to unravel the whole thing and knit it again on size 6 needles. The soft basket turned out cute (but is a little floppy knit in the recommended Blue Sky Alpaca Cotton yarn) and so far the baby cardigan is going well, although I wished the pattern was for older babies too (not just newborn-9 months). Anyway, I think some of the ideas in the book are corny (reusable hot coffee-cup sleeve) and others are quite pretty (big lacy scarf)! For a intermediate level knitter the instructions are bit confusing, and most of the patterns... 3/5 lulu - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
