Grace Paley Dies at 84

gracep.jpgI just read on Maud Newton’s blog that Grace Paley died today. Here is her obituary from the New York Times.

“Grace Paley, the celebrated writer and social activist whose acclaimed short stories explored in precise, pungent and tragicomic style the struggles of ordinary women muddling through everyday lives, died Wednesday at her home in Thetford Hill, Vt. She was 84 and lived most of her life in Manhattan before moving to Vermont in 1988.”
