The Grace Paley Permanent Peace Crane Origami Ornament
Grace Paley, an American Poet, Writer and Civic Activist, born December 11, 1922 died August 22, 2007.
Her most important and multiple times published work is "The Little Disturbances of Man"

Having spent several years as a typist and housewife, Paley turned her attention back to writing in the mid 1950s. After a number of rejections, Paley published her first collection, "The Little Disturbances of Man" (1959) with Doubleday. The collection features eleven stories of New York life, several of which have since been widely anthologized, particularly "Goodbye and Good Luck" and "The Used-Boy Raisers." RIP
