Peace to Grace Paley and much gratitude.

Another interview at Salon.

NY Times on Paley’s books.

Listen to Paley read and a conversation at UPENN.


“Let us go forth with fear and courage and rage to save the world.”

“You know the mind is an astonishing, long-living, erotic thing.”

“. . . people will sometimes say, ‘Why don’t you write more politics?’ And I have to explain to them that writing the lives of women is politics.”

–Grace Paley
