Welty is on home ground in the state of Mississippi in this collection of seven stories. She portrays the MacLains, the Starks, the Moodys, and other families of the fictitious town of Morgana. "I doubt that a better book about ''the South''-one that more completely gets the feel of the particular texture of Southern life and its special tone and pattern-has ever been written" (New Yorker).

Author Bio
Eudora Welty
Eudora Welty was born in Mississippi and has described her childhood as remarkably contented. After college, she worked in advertising in New York City, but eventually made her home in the state where she was born. She worked in 1935 as a publicity agent for the WPA, and also became a particularly adept photographer: she published her photographs before publishing any fiction. She was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 1973 for her novel THE OPTIMIST'S DAUGHTER, and she also received the National Book Critics Circle Award, the American Book Award, several O. Henry Awards for her short stories, and the Gold Medal of the National Institute of Arts and Letters; she was inducted into the French Legion of Honor and was presented with the Medal in 1980 by President Jimmy Carter. One of America's most beloved Southern writers, Welty was a humorous, affectionate, and perceptive chronicler of the region, but her work transcended "regionalism" to document in fiercely vivid prose the lives of ordinary people in the context of family and community.

Praise

Atlantic Monthly
"The style is so idiomatic you can hear the drawl; the atmosphere, hot, brooding, and peculiarly Southern, is conveyed by the sensuous details and by the feminine divination of character." - Edward Weeks September 1949

Commonweal
"Miss Welty's art is strong enough to bring her community together and leave it with a hold on you." 09/30/1949

Kirkus Reviews
"In the field of modern American writing, Eudora Welty's name bears the hallmark of greatness." 07/01/1949

New York Times
"Miss Welty is a happy writer: happy in being utterly familiar with her material, in having great quantities of it at her disposal, and especially happy, even triumphant, in her mastery of selection and presentation." - Francis Steegmuller 04/21/1049

New Yorker
"I doubt that a better book about 'the South'--one that more completely gets the feel of the particular texture of Southern life, and its special tone and pattern--has ever been written." 09/03/1949
