Publisher's Synopsis

FROM THE PULITZER PRIZE AND NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST, GRACE PALEY

'Grace Paley's is exceptional' KASIA BODDY, GUARDIAN

'Her unladylike gutsiness and friendliness are nonpareil' EDMUND WHITE, OBSERVER

'They are stories full of the stories we all tell and live by, tall stories as well as short' SALMAN RUSHDIE

Here are all Grace Paley's classic stories in one volume. From her first book The Little Disturbances of Man (1959) to Enormous Changes at the Last Minute (1974) and Later the Same Day (1985), Grace Paley's quirky, boisterous characters and rich use of language have won her readers' hearts and secured her place as one of America's most accomplished short story writers. Her stories are united by her signature interweaving of personal and political truths, her extraordinary capacity for empathy and her pointed depiction of the small and large events that make up daily life.
