Regarded as one of the finest American short story writers and admired by George Saunders, Susan Sontag and Salman Rushdie, this volume presents Paley's collected works. Published as part of a beautifully designed series to mark the 40th anniversary of the Virago Modern Classics.
This work weaves together diary entries, letters and interviews of Barbara Deming to provide a very human portrait of the evolution of an individual activist and the development of contemporary ""movement"" philosophy. Judith McDaniel's biographical essay accompanies Deming's own accounts.
