A few hot human truthful words are powerful enough…
Reading Paley's collection is like having a conversation with someone who gets to the point in a few words, and I can appreciate a woman of necessary words. It's not too often that you come across a short story collection and you're immediately stunned by the singularity of voice and style. I had to comb through some of these stories again, wondering what it was that made me feel as though I could hear the characters' voices somewhere other than in the recesses of my reader's mind. Even though I had been familiar with Paley's literature-class-favorite Mother and some of her poems, I wasn't prepared for the profundity of the denouement (or the lack of) within her stories. The wonderment of these stories are found within the pizazz of the word arrangement, the flow of the dialogue that makes no use of quotation marks, the subtlety of language, and the various perspectives.

Some of these stories are so short, they could be poems - this I found fascinating. I really enjoyed the brevity of her shorter shorts like "Love," "In The Garden," "At That Time, or the History of a Joke," and of course, "Mother." In these stories, the mystery of life is paralleled through story structure and conversational tones, and a lot of meaning is delivered with few embellishments.

Some of the longer stories with their slew of characters didn't resonate with me, with the exception of "Zagrowsky Tells," a story about a man who doesn't know how to live with people of a different race, until his mentally unstable daughter bears a biracial grandson for him to raise. The way Paley handles sensitive race issues in this story is instructive and appeasing to any reader. What is really catchy, however, is the 'voice' and style she applies to her story that makes them so distinctive - after you've read a Paley story once, you won't have to look for the author's name again when you do revisit another of her works, because her writing is that unique. This, I find alluring. So in Grace Paley style, I will leave you with a succinct review of hopefully, only the necessary words.
