The Collected Stories of Grace Paley

This May our Virago Modern Classics Book Club selection is The Collected Stories of Grace Paley. Regarded as one of the finest American short story writers and admired by George Saunders, Susan Sontag and Salman Rushdie, this collection presents all Grace Paley’s classic stories in one volume.

Paley’s quirky, boisterous characters and rich use of language won her readers’ hearts and secured her place as one of America’s most accomplished short-story writers. Her stories are united by her signature interweaving of personal and political truths, her extraordinary capacity for empathy and her pointed depiction of the small and large events that make up daily life.
