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

    The Last Minute (The Sam Capra series)

    Rating (107 reviews):

    Grand Central Publishing

    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 (Houston) - 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

    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.

    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.

    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
