Synopsis >

Grace -- GRACE PALEY was one of America's most loved writers, as well as a political activist for human rights and world peace. Her first short-story collection 'The Little Distrubances of Man' told the sad, funny, sexy stories of 'ordinary' women; it immediately established her international reputation. In this 51-minute documentary, GRACE reminisces about her work, her family, and early literary and political influences. We see Grace at home, in interviews over several decades, and at some of her fabled performance-readings. Grace's close friends and colleagues - Jean Valentine, Poet Laureate of New York; Vera Williams, author, illustrator; Eva Kollisch, author, educator; and others - remember GRACE as a 'combative pacifist and cooperative anarchist' and 'a writer of genius.'
