Eudora Welty's subjects are the people who live in southern towns like Jackson, Mississippi, which has been her home for all of her long life. I've stayed in one place,' she says, and 'it's become the source of the information that stirs my imagination.' Her distinctive voice and wry observations are rooted in the southern conversational tradition. The stories in this volume, from the first two collections she published, range in tone from the quietly understated and psychologically subtle to the outrageously grotesque. Linking them all is Welty's remarkable ear for the language and point of view of the South. 'She's a lot smarter than her cousins in Beula,' someone remarks about a reputed suicide in one story. 'Especially Edna Earle, that never did get to be what you'd call a heavy thinker. Edna Earle could sit and ponder all day on how the little tail of the 'c' got through the 'I' in a Coca-Cola sign."

I love Eudora Welty. There, I've said it. Ages ago I heard her interviewed on PBS and was entranced by her; her voice, her intelligence, her charm, her descriptions and way with words. I said to myself, "I should read some of her work."

Also some time ago, I ran across one of her books of photographs and thought that it was just great.

Also (again???), when I first got on the internet, I used Eudora email software for quite some time. I think that the software is still around today and was named after Eudora Welty.

Okay, here comes the review, which isn't in the usual mode, it's more of a confession...

I tried to read a couple of her novels and bogged down on each of them. The writing seemed to go on at great length without progress and I gave up. I just couldn't do it.

I recently found this book at a used book store, noted it was a collection of her SHORT stories and picked it up. Noted at this writing is one LT rating of "1" and perhaps that rating person had the same reaction I did to her work, descriptions go on and on and on... I did read "Why I Live on the P.O." and three or four of her other stories that were shorter and thought that they were somewhat interesting in build-up.

I can't rate her book a "5" or even a "4." I couldn't live with myself, so I copped out and didn't rate the book. Sorry Miz Welty. I tried my best which, sadly, is none too good.
