Here and Somewhere Else

Here two writers married to each other employ dramatically different narrative styles and voices to write politically. Often seriocomic, Grace Paley's short fiction, including a previously uncollected New Yorker story, features characters “talking in their heads.” Robert Nichols, a master of the macabre incident described in surreal terms, sets his new stories in rural Vermont and Third World countries.
