Some brief overview of this book

Stories are as good in themselves and as influential on the aspirations of others as any since Hemingways. The breadth of Weltys offering is finally most visible not in the variety of types—farce, satire, horror, lyric, pastoral, mystery—but in the clarity and solidity and absolute honesty of a lifetimes vision.

Winner of the 1983 National Book Award

er and novelist Eudora Welty seemed always to return to Jackson, Mississippi, the beloved hometown where she spent most of her adult life and where she undoubtedly drew inspiration for her pitch-perfect regional fiction. Born into a happy, close-knit family on April 13, 1909, Welty attended Mississippi State College, graduated from the University of Wisconsin, then moved to New York in 1930 to attend Columbias business school for advertising. A year later, her fathers death brought her home. She worked locally in radio, wrote articles for a newspaper, and served as a publicity agent for the WPA throughout rural areas of the state. (A gifted photographer, Welty shot a number of remarkable candids at this time which were later published in the 1978 collection One Time, One Place: Mississippi in the Depression.) A few of her stories appeared in small literary magazines in the late 1930s, but it was not until the following decade that her career took off. Her first short fiction collection, A Curtain of Green, and a debut novella, The Robber Bridegroom, were published respectively in 1941 and 1942. Although Welty has penned some wonderful full-length novels (The Ponder Heart, Losing Battles, The Optimists Daughter), it is her short stories — peopled with peculiar, colorful eccentrics who maintain an undeniable charm in spite of their grotesquerie — that have cemented her reputation as one of our finest regional writers. During her long literary career she accrued dozens of honors, including multiple O. Henry Awards, the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Pulitzer Prize, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Frances Legion of Honor, and dozens of honorary degrees. On July, 23, 2001, she died peacefully in her home in Jackson, Mississippi. She was 92 years old.

Good To Know

Welty worked for a year at The New York Times Book Review, where she wrote about war-related topics under the pseudonym Michael Ravenna. In 1964, Welty published her one and only story for children, The Shoe Bird. Culled from a series of lectures she delivered at Harvard, Weltys memoir, One Writers Beginnings, was published in 1984. So legendary was Weltys niceness that her agent Timothy Seldes told a wonderful, apocryphal story at her funeral. Supposedly, as the author lay on her deathbed, her doctor leaned over and asked Eudora, is there anything I can do for you? Her rumored reply? No, but thank you so much for inviting me to the party.
