Here and Somewhere Else: Stories and Poems by Grace Paley and Robert Nichols

Overview

Here two writers married to each other employ dramatically different narrative styles and voices to write politically. Often seriocomic, Grace Paley’s short fiction, including a previously uncollected New Yorker story, features characters “talking in their heads.” Robert Nichols, a master of the macabre incident described in surreal terms, sets his new stories in rural Vermont and Third World countries.
