Abstract:

"Can you imagine? That woman went on for pages just about ironing. Standing there ironing!" said an unimaginative judge about Tillie Olsen's short story, submitted in a competition for a fellowship at Stanford University. Olsen credits that fellowship, which she won, as the catalyst that transformed her back into a professional writer after 20 years of motherhood. In this interview conducted by historian Peter Carroll, Tillie Olsen--known for her powerful writings about the inner lives of the working poor, women, and minorities--discusses her autobiographical "Help Her to Believe," serendipitously renamed "I Stand Here Ironing."
