Grace Paley is an outstanding author. I recommend this to any book lover. Each chapter is a different story, and while some i enjoyed more than others, each was had its own quarks that i enjoyed. Paley leaves images and words pressed into your mind leaving you amazed. more than anything Paley is extraordinary at picking the perfect words to leave an impression. I at least recommend reading the chapter "Come on, Ye Sons of Art." Witch, alone, is a wonderful story. Read this book and you won't regret it.
