Award-winning short story author and feminist activist.
Wrote three critically acclaimed collections of short stories, compiled in the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist “The Collected Stories” in 1994.
Paley was among the earliest American writers to explore the lives of women — mostly Jewish, mostly New Yorkers — in all their dailiness. She focused especially on single mothers, whose days were an exquisite mix of sexual yearning and pulverizing fatigue.
