I like this profile, if a profile can be something like a 360 view, with reference to A Grace Paley Reader, fairly recent selection of stories, poems, nonfiction (A not The, which seems appropriate):

Paley should be considered one of the great mid-century American writers, seems ripe for "rediscovery" in every way (though of course she has never stopped being beloved by other writers and MFA students) Crackling American demotic language which is in every way LITERARY -- so hard to do, so few succeed.

two years pass...

Reading Collected Stories thanks to Lydia Davis' active interest.

I'm adjusting to her rhythms.
