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). 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 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

    Great Series!

    0 5/5 BookPro "BookPro" - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Alaska The Last Frontier Season 3 (Amazon Instant Video) The series has very appealing main characters living a lifestyle that most of us could not endure....but we can appreciate through programs like this one. Hunting, fishing, farming, raising cattle...plus recycling on a level far beyond our green trashcans in the Lower 48 are incredibly engaging and educational. However, as entertaining and informational as that is, Alaska itself is the main star...and a worthy one full of surprises and amazing scenery. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 13, 2013

    Must have book for your sewing library!

    0 5/5 Patti "Patti" (Beautiful Carolinas) - See all my reviews This review is from: Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts (Hardcover) This book is fantastic! Just what you expect from Joelle Hoverson and Stewart, Taboori, and Chang. The pictures are beautiful and the projects are varied and interesting. Like her Last Minute Knitted Gifts, this book is broken down by estimated time to make the project. The first projects are simple and take only and hour or two. The projects are all very original, and go from the simplicity of little quilted coasters to an heirloom-worthy log cabin quilt. There are gifts you could make for many different people, from babies to your grandma!The instructions are very clear, and even if you have been sewing for years you will learn new techniques. I cannot wait to try out the technique for applique- much easier than the needles turned and stitched method! I cannot wait to make the wonderful quilt with the birds in the tree. If you enjoy sewing, and making handmade gifts for people, then you will definitely get your money's worth from this book! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 25, 2007

    Beautiful, inspiring but imperfect book

    0 3/5 N. Olson "polyglot" (Newton, MA USA) - See all my reviews, January 19, 2008

    A variety of projects, but a lot of "ditch-stiching"

    This book has many different projects to choose from. Many of the projects are simple quilts. These gifts are generally traditional, not very "trendy", though there are a few unique ideas. (I love the color wheel quilt and a sailboat wall hanging!)This book does not include assembly diagrams. The instructions are pretty clear, but if you are a visual person, this may be a little difficult.***If you are a serious quilter, and dislike "stitching-in-the-ditch", this book is probably not for you! Most of her quilted projects call for this practice. I think stitching in the ditch is sloppy, but I will use these patterns and come up with an alternative way to quilt the projects.If you are considering other popular sewing books, here are some thoughts:Amy Butler's In-Stitches or Lotta Jansdotter's Simple sewing are other alternatives. They offer ideas for gift projects that are are more modern. The projects are not quilted, and they are more everyday... 4/5 J.

    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.
