'DON'T SEND ME
Grace Paley : Or I'll kick 'em back
at you. My dissent is cheer, a listless
disposition. When you write, you
illuminate what's hidden, and that's
a political act. There's a certain chance
that life is over, when everything starts
seeming routine. Fight that, see. I had
to write; I could no longer keep my
tact in my mouth, the pressure was
always building - I was beginning
to suffer the storytellers' pain : Listen!
I have to tell you something! It is
April - the season of first
looking out the window.
