Beschreibung

These stories offer a clear-eyed reckoning with life's contradictions, losses, and consolations: a professor's wife loses her connection to her husband but rediscovers herself; and in the celebrated title novella, a generation of postwar idealists in New York comes to terms with a country increasingly divided against itself.

Portrait

Harvey Swados (1920-1972) was born in Buffalo, the son of a doctor. A graduate of the University of Michigan, he served in the Merchant Marine during World War II and published his first novel, Out Went the Candle, in 1955. His other books include the novels Standing Fast and Celebration; a group of stories set in an auto plant, On the Line, widely regarded as a classic of the literature of work; and various collections of nonfiction, including A Radical's America. Swados's 1959 essay for Esquire, "Why Resign from the Human Race?," has often been said to have inspired the formation of the Peace Corps. Grace Paley is a writer and a teacher, a feminist and an activist. Her books include The Collected Stories; Just as I Thought, which gathers personal and political essays and articles; and Begin Again: Collected Poems. She lives in New York City and Vermont.
