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

    Good recipes

    0 3/5 ad88 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Drop A Dress Size in 7 Days: The Ultimate Last-Minute Body Transformation! (Kindle Edition) This book had some good recipes and tips and might work, but I didn't try it. It was motivational and the basic diet plan Is there. The plan is that you must follow the exact menu items. Although there are 7 breakfast, lunch and dinner choices, my lifestyle is not that structured even for 1 week. Some of the meals would be too complicated for me to prepare, and with a family to feed, it would be impractical and almost impossible. I also wonder if you would gain back the weight if you go back to a normal diet after a week. The recipes were basically sugar free, low calorie. If you would like some good recipes and meal choices, it would be worthwhile reading, especially if you are only cooking for 1. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 19, 2015

    Couldn't Put It Down!!!

    0 5/5 cydney - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Last-Minute Love (Year of the Chick series) (Kindle Edition) I read both of Romi's books and I have to say that it's been awhile since I read a book that I truly could not put down!! I laughed out loud...i cried out loud...and I loved every minute of it. I am widowed now..its been five years , and it takes a lot for me to truly be happy right now. But your books, I've read both, truly gave me those true hours of joy I haven't felt in a very long time. I can't wait for the third book and was upset that I couldn't get it already....so hurry the heck up....I need these laughs and tears. Love you as an author...it's truly a gift to make people all over the world want to be your friend. Good luck writing...I will be sitting on the edge of my seat....waiting for the next adventure. Cydney. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 18, 2012

    Great read

    0 4/5 Teri (Virginia) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Last-Minute Love (Year of the Chick series) (Kindle Edition) After having enjoyed the first book in this series I was excited to read this one. I need to admit that towards the beginning of the book I was a little confused - I don't want to say too much as I don't want to spoil the stories for anyone. I felt the transition from the end of the first book to the start of the second book left a lot of missing areas I had questions about. Other than that, I truly enjoyed the story. I'm hoping some day that Romi will find a love that makes her heart sing! Even better, I hope she'll find a local love! That her parents will approve of. And become friends with her sister. And.. well, I grew attached to Romi from reading these 2 books, and I just want good things for her! To me, that's a sure sign of a good story - when I'm still thinking of the characters days after I've turned the last page. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 1, 2012

    Creative projects, a beautiful book

    I first learned about this book while watching an episode of "Cultivating Life with Sean Conway" last month on my local PBS station. The author, Cynthia Treen, was on the show demonstrating how to felt rocks to use as paperweights and such. Intrigued, I wanted to see the rest of the book. I have not been disappointed.The book itself is lovely - well designed with heavy, quality paper. It is divided by how long each of the 30 projects will take to make. There are 11 alone that take less than one hour, including a great zippered corduroy change purse and an adorable felted rabbit. The other projects are divided into those that take between an hour and two hours (seven); two to three hours (seven more); and more than three hours (five projects). There are gifts appropriate for children and adults; friends and acquaintances alike. There are also sections in the back that display some beautiful ways to wrap fabric gifts and a guide to tools and techniques.

    Fabric Gifts book contents & my thoughts

    First of all, this is not a how-to-sew book, or even a sewing book, so I don't think it should be reviewed as one. If you're looking for sewing clothes or home decor projects, there are plenty of others to look into. The title says it all: this is a book about making fabric gifts in a short amount of time using a variety of techniques. It will appeal to beginners who want learn new fabric crafting skills, and people who already have skills but are in a hurry.--Book Contents--The projects:* less than 1 hour: bias blossom, coat sleeve bag, tie pouch, corduroy change purse, fabric belt, fabric envelopes, felt rabbits, fabric covered notebook, quick dish towl, bark cloth baby bib, cat toy.* 1-2 hours: recycled sweater hats, cotton knit animals, felted rocks, fringed quest towels, patchwork pillow, red cross appliqued pillow, travel pouch.* 2-3 hours: silk-trimmed wool blanket, hand stitched scarf, reversible hooded towel/blanket,... 4/5 Snuffykin (Menlo Park, CA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Last-Minute Fabric Gifts: 30 Hand-Sew, Machine-Sew, and No-Sew Projects (Sewing) (Hardcover) First of all, this is not a how-to-sew book, or even a sewing book, so I don't think it should be reviewed as one.

    Too Simplistic

    Last Minute Knitted Gifts is one of my favorite knitting books, so I bought this book hoping to find lots of inspiration for cute sewing projects. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed with it. Many of the patterns (scarves, blankets, dishtowels, a sarong) involve not much more than buying a large piece of fabric and hemming it. Some projects are not sewing projects per se, but rather involve felting (felted rocks? Seriously?), or simply using fusible interfacing to attach fabric to things. While the results of all of these types of projects aren't unattractive, I'd rather use my limited crafting time to create, rather than embellish, and I certainly don't need a book to tell me that if you hem a piece of fabric, you can call it a blanket. As for the actual sewing projects--well, some are cute, but if you can't find versions of them for free on Craftster or the crafty blogs, you're not looking very hard. There are some cute projects here--a darling felt bunny, a patchwork... 2/5 Dogged (Grand Rapids, MI United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
