Evidently her new book is attracting a lot more attention than Fierce Attachments did. She may finally be getting the recognition she has always felt was denied her. Better late than never, as they say. I wish I liked her book better. She has got me reading Grace Paley again, though, and I'm glad for that.

Big irony: The doorman at the apartment where she has lived for 30 years did not know who she was. He must have been a different doorman from the one in the anecdote about the beggar and the pizza.
