"A solid and vital fictional world, cross-referenced and dense with life." —Walter Clemons, Newsweek
"I can't think of another writer who captures the itch of the city, the love between parents and children, or the cutting edge of combat, as well." —Lis Harris, The New York Times Book Review

Grace Paley is a woman of humor and wide perception. Her ear for the subtleties of downtown New York City life is without competition. As Isaac Singer picks up the nuances of people at the 42nd St. Automat, so Grace picks up the banter between characters from Jewish theater downtown. As a narrator, she is a neutral observer. If you always wanted to meet characters from the lower east side, these stories are for you.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
