"Grace Paley makes me weep and laugh--and admire. She is that rare kind of writer, a natural, with a voice like no one else's: funny, sad, lean, modest, energetic, acute." --Susan Sontag
"A solid and vital fictional world, cross-referenced and dense with life." --Walter Clemons, Newsweek
"I can't think of another writer who captures the itch of the city, the love between parents and children, or the cutting edge of combat, as well." --Lis Harris, The New York Times Book Review
