She has spent a lifetime developing a significant point of view with which she delicately examines the nature of peoples everyday activities. She can take an apparently insignificant event or relationship and explore it with such lucidity and perception that it becomes transformed into an intense drama, whole in itself and deeply moving.In another sense, these are stories of certain times and certain places: Austria in the months just before the Anschluss- Lisbon in 1939, when thousands were trapped in the city seeking passage out of Europe- West Germany during the Allied occupation- the rural South in the 1960s- Manhattan in the 40s, as well as the 60s- and the streets of Greenwich Village in 1964.By building these small personal dramas in the frameworks of history, Kay Boyle has succeeded in eloquently evoking both the times and the people who live in them.
