Grace Paley Fans

Grace Paley fans, you'll want to pick up a copy of the most recent Massachusetts Review (or better yet, subscribe!). The entire issue is devoted to Paley and includes works by Mark Doty, Janet Kauffman, Terry Gross, Naomi Shihab Nye, William O'Rourke, and of course many selections by Grace Paley as well as contributions from her daughter, Nora Paley. Eight pages of Paley's manuscript are included, complete with her handwritten notes.

Thanks for flagging this up! Oddly, I'm most excited to see Paley's handwriting -- because her name is almost an anagram of paleography? because I'm credulous? because she was a craftswoman and letters were her craft? What's your favourite Paley?
