Grace Paley

Grace Paley died this week.

The literary bloggers are all telling their Grace Paley stories. Mine is tiny. When she read in Santa Fe, I stood in the long line with my entire beat-up stack of Grace Paley paperbacks for her to sign. When it was my turn, I told her, "I've loved your stories for a long time." "I can tell," she answered; and wrote her name in every one.

Great story, Mir. This past week on NPR's Fresh Air, Terry Gross replayed an old interview with her. It was wonderful. I'm sure it is archived and can be listened to.
