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

    Revenge Driven Thriller

    To say that Sam Capra is motivated would be an understatement. His ex-wife, who committed treason against the CIA and cost Sam his job with the "Special Projects", now lies in a permanent vegetative state. His former employers are actively pursuing him for his alleged crimes that occurred while trying to clean up the mess that his wife created. On top of that, a mysterious criminal group, The Nine Suns, has kidnapped his newborn son, Daniel. The only way Sam will ever see his son again is if he finds and murders the man who holds the evidence to expose the Nine Suns. If he fails to kill the man, his son will die. Like I said, motivation is an understatement.To assist with this assignment, Sam is provided with a hacker, Leonie, whose young daughter, Taylor, has also been abducted. Together, they set out to hunt down the man who stands between them and their children. Emotionally conflicted, the pair struggles to come to terms with killing an innocent man, but they decide... 3/5 Ethan - See all my reviews This review is from: The Last Minute (The Sam Capra series) (Hardcover) To say that Sam Capra is motivated would be an understatement.

    Thriller

    Sam Capra, former CIA and hero of "Adrenaline", again fights off international criminals and tries to save the life of his new-born child while his ex-wife lies in a coma. The book is fast-paced, full of thrills-a-minute while Sam fights off criminal factions from all sides, including his former friends from the CIA. Mila, his mentor from "Adrenaline", is also back and this time she reveals how she became the woman who will go up against anything and anyone. Her part of the story is mesmerizing to say the least and reveals another chapter in the Sam Capra series. Sam is forced to team up with another woman who also had her child taken from her by the mysterious criminal factions that seem to multiply, not knowing which side is the right side, and their hopeless job is to find and kill an innocent man if they want their children back. Fortunately, Sam is an expert in parkour, jumping and running off buildings and roofs which help him in fighting the odds.

    LOTS OF ACTION..Audiobook Review

    0 3/5 Laura Todd (Central KY) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Last Minute (The Sam Capra series) (Hardcover) I rated it 3 stars for a reason.I won't rehash the summary/plot...others have done that.I love Jeff Abbott.And this book is full of action and adventure - which I thoroughly enjoy.The action gets a 4 1/2.But from an audiobook standpoint, I got so sick and tired of hearing - "I just want my child/son"...became quite annoying.If I had read it, instead of listened to it, I could have skimmed over that and it may not have bothered me.I don't like how he left the ending with Leone...blah...pathetic - other reviewers disagree with me on that.If you read, skim over the whining, if you listen, it will annoy you.Overall I recommend this book and this author.SPOILER*********Now that he has his son, hopefully, the son will not be dragged in to further books. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 4, 2012

The only thing it needs is longer eyelashes. When you put on the mascara, you can barely see the eyelashes, because they're so short. I LOVE long eyelashes so they need choices. Also the microphone is higher than the hand so I don't use the microphones. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 16, 2014

    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?)

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

    0 4/5 Stanshall2003 - See all my reviews This review is from: Six Hour Technicolor Dream (Audio CD) A pre-Stars archival concert giving you an insight how they sounded during their scant existence. Contrary to the cd's notes Fred Frith (pre-Henry Cow) appears as lead guitarist on all the tracks along with another guitarist who isn't identified but who is obvious. Syd Barrett is introduced & mainly stays in the background on 3 tracks. Some claim he's doing all the soloing but mainly he plays a secondary accompanying role. . The recording is astonishingly clear for a non soundboard recording not discounting some tape dropout here & there. For those who wondered & read about Barrett's Stars involvement - and believe me, I've wondered many years- this is as close as you're going to get to a bona fide tangible answer. Twink & Jack Monk are a formidable rhythm section & the non Barrett tracks are just as interesting. Not for beginners.
