A century after her birth, Tillie Olsena€™s writing is as relevant as when it first appeared; indeed, the clarity and passion of her vision and style have, if anything, become even more striking over time. Collected here for the first time are several of Olsena€™s nonfiction pieces about the 1930s, early journalism pieces, and short fiction, including the four beautifully crafted, highly celebrated stories originally published as Tell Me a Riddle: a€œI Stand Here Ironing, a€ a€œHey Sailor, What Ship?, a€ a€œO Yes, a€ and a€œTell Me a Riddle.a€ Also included, for the first time since it appeared in the 1971 Best American Short Stories, is a€œRequa I.a€ In these stories, as in all of her work, Olsen set a new standard for the treatment of women and the poor and for the depiction of their lives and circumstances. In her hands, the hard truths about motherhood and marriage, domestic life, labor, and political conviction found expression in language of such poetic intensity and depth that its influence continues to be felt today. An introduction by Olsena€™s granddaughter, the poet Rebekah Edwards, and a foreword by her daughter Laurie Olsen provide a personal and generational context for the authora€™s work.Steve, dona#39;t fight it no more. ...
