    BREVI TRISTI STORIE DI LUNGHE VITE FELICI Il Manhattan Bridge da Lower East Side.Grace Paley, che non c pi dal 22 agosto del 2007, mi ha colpito.O meglio, mi hanno colpito i suoi racconti sono fuori dal coro, possiedono un ritmo insolito, si muovono come uccelli sui rami, sono composti da un orecchio perfetto Foto di William Roege Ogden Avenue nel Bronx 1939.Ottantacinque anni di vita, quaranta anni di attivit e solo quarantacinque racconti per un totale di 370 pagine pi qualche poesia, e poco altro Tre raccolte nella sua lingua The Little Disturbances of Man 1959, Enormous Changes at the Last Minute 1974, Later the Same Day 1985 La prima dovrebbe corrispondere a questa edizione Giunti.Tutte e tre, invece, sono contenute tutte in un unica edizione Einaudi Tempo dedicato ai figli da crescere, all attivit politica, alla vita di tutti i giorni infatti diceva L arte richiede tempo e la vita troppo breve C tanto altro da fare oltre a scrivere.

    More than half a century after it was published, Grace Paley s debut, The Little Disturbances Of Man, remains fierce, funny and startingly fresh.The author had yet to discover fully her political activism that would come a decade or so later, as chronicled in the appropriately named Enormous Changes At The Last Minute 1974 but this first book provides great insights into urban women and men dealing with sex, relationships and raising kids.These stories pulse and throb with the ordinary struggles and satisfactions of daily life In the opening tale, the much anthologized Goodbye And Good Luck, a middle aged woman recounts her decades long affair with a glamorous married actor from a Yiddish Theatre group, which alienated her from her sister she s telling the story to her sister s daughter The Loudest Voice is a hilarious look at a fearless young Jewish girl who takes part in her school s Christmas pageant, much to the chagrin of her immigrant father.The characters young or old, male or female seize hold of their lives and try to make do when disappointments hit them They re surv...

    The cover of this edition has a line from Philip Roth spendidly comic and unladylike My sense of humor seems at variance with many, but I did find many amusing lines The unladylike is spot on There is no real sex in these, but the situations are obvious I was shocked Not because of so much sexual activity which involved pre marital sex, free sex, and outright adultery, but because this little volume was first published in 1956 in the United States This was a time when a girl was sent off to her aunt for an extended stay and the pregnancy never referred to Sex outside of marriage simply did not happen Oh Well, if there were unwanted pregnancies, then maybe people were having sex and authors like Paley could write about it But definitely unladylike My favorite story was the first, Goodbye and Good Luck, where a young girl gets a job as a ticket seller at a Jewish theater and then is wooed off her feet by an older actor The Pale Pink Roast was another I enjoyed, wherein a woman is abandoned by her husband but, with pluck and charm, manages to supplement her welfare check due to the weekly attentions from the married son of a neighbor In The Loudest Voice, Jewish schoolchildren are cast as the stars in the Christmas play.I admit there were a couple of stories that wandered far from quirky and all the way to bizarre These failed to interest me Paley writes in a breezy manne...

    This book of short stories was published in 1959 a lifetime ago and it is still very fun to read I love the NYC and Jewish settings I will steal some quotes from other GR reviews that say just what I would want to say about this book Half way through the first paragraph Only a person like your mama stands on one foot, she don t notice how big her behind is getting and sings in the canary s ear for thirty years Who s listening I realized I was in the company of some very special literature In less than seven lines, Paley had declared herself, her work, deserving of my full attention and respect This book outlines the sexually charged life we lead as human beings and how that can be complicated by communication, distance, closeness, and much Gorgeous little volume from a beautiful writer I found that the language in each story relatable and hilarious almost the entire book The curse words are so expertly placed, you would swear Paley has made poetry of profanity Written in New York in 1959, this collection of stories involves real love, real li...

    I had never read Grace Paley before and certainly didn t expect such a weird, wonderful writer Her stories are disturbing, surprising without being gimmicky and very funny Some of her sentences are so perfect, they made me gasp This collection of stories was going to launch my new plan to keep a book of short stories on my bedside table and read a couple a week or whe...
