About this title


Here are all of Grace Paley's classic stories collected in one volume. Her quirky, boisterous characters and rich use of language have won her readers' hearts and secured her place as one of America's most accomplished writers of short fiction.

About the Author:

Grace Paley was born the daughter of Russian immigrants in the Bronx, New York, in 1922. Her short stories and essays have appeared in The New Yorker, Esquire, and The Atlantic Monthly, among other publications. Her highly acclaimed collections of stories include The Little Disturbances of Man (1959), Enormous Changes at the Last Minute (1974), Later the Same Day (1985), and The Collected Stories (1994), which won the National Book Award. She is also the author of two books of poetry, Leaning Forward (1985) and Begin Again(1992), and one collection of poems and prose pieces, Long Walks and Intimate Talks (1991). She has taught at Sarah Lawrence, Columbia, Dartmouth, and City College, and is a popular lecturer and workshop leader at colleges and universities. Included among her awards and honors are a 1997 Lannan Literary Award for Fiction; the 1994 National Book Award for Fiction; the 1993 Vermont Award for Excellence in the Arts; the 1992 REA award for Short Stories; and the 1989 Edith Wharton Award. In 1989 she was honored at a ceremony in Albany, New York, by then Governor Mario Cuomo, who declared her the first official New York State Writer. She now divides her time between New York City and Thetford Hill, Vermont.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
