Notes

Description
In these 17 stories, a small circle of intelligent, concerned friends cluster about a central figure, Faith, who listens, observes, questions, remembers, and records their lifelong attachments. In this selection of her work over the past 10 years, Paley's themes have changed only as much as life's constants change with the passage of time. Her characters are deeply involved with their parents, their lovers and friends, and their children, and the welfare of the wider community. In these stories we meet the neighborhood druggist with his tale of familial heartbreak; a father in Puerto Rico who cannot accept the loss of his child by kidnapping; a black woman who bemoans woman's lot; a visitor from China who is concerned about how to raise children; a craftsman whose beautiful creation is stillborn. The whole collection is graced with the author's warmth and aphoristic wit, her telling ear for dialogue, and her quintessential storytelling art. ISBN 0-374-18409-7: $13.95.
