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 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.

    Memoir of the last days of W. C. Fields and John Barrymore

    I sighed when I finished this book because I wanted it to be twice as long. Gene Fowler, as good a journalist as there ever was (check out any of his other books for proof) tells the last years of W.C. Fields, John Barrymore and artist, John Decker, and what it was like to be around these guys when they were in a party spirit. Fowler's anecdotes about Fields defying police officers and border guards is worth the price of admission. He cannot explain, even to himself, how Fields got away with some of the things he did. This is not a biography, just a memoir, of a time when their talent was fading as fast as their bankbooks (and in Field's case, possible fraud since his estate of $800,000 at the time of his death seemed way to low for Fowler's estimation). The story is wrapped around the life of Sadikichi Hartmann, a sometime poet/artist/critic whom Barrymore liked and Fields detested. Barrymore convinces Fowler that Hartmann's life as an artist (the man was living in a hut on a... 5/5 0, November 13, 2012

    Another idea book, nice looking cover, but absolutely no pictures! Cover page does not even match ideas inside.

This review is from: DIY Holiday Gifts: 22+ Adorable Last-minute DIY Gifts That Everyone Will Love (And No One Will Guess You Are Actually Broke): (Creativity, DUY Crafts, ... DIY decorations, gifts in a jar Book 1) (Kindle Edition) I'm not sure why people keep putting out idea books without pictures! Also there were a few grammar errors, the most notable one being the repeated incorrect use of "our" and "are". Just because they sound similar doesn't mean you can use them interchangeably.Three of the big Pepsi cube packs will not give you 150 cans. The largest pack I've seen is a 24 pack cube.The cover page doesn't even match the ideas in the book!I'm beginning to suspect people are taking ideas from resources in other languages and practicing their English skills in the form of e-books to get free feedback or maybe even a grade for their class. Anyone else have any ideas why we are getting these types of books? 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 12, 2015
