    Thanks to Ceridwen for reminding me about Meridel Le Sueur. I've had this collection of stories on my shelf since the 1980s, so reading again after so long was like reading anew. The book is really two collections, the more literary stories of "Harvest" (among the very best of the genre, respecting the classic rules of unity of time, place & character, written exquisitely) and the overtly political & engaged story-journalism of Song for My Time. Throughout, Le Sueur exhibits a honed artistry as well as a generosity of spirit and intellect that make for compelling reading.
