it was amazing
Read in May, 2009

Eudora Welty writes prose like no one else. Her dialogue is always spot on and her descriptions are so pastoral and beautiful. I read the book all day, but took a couple naps. When I woke, I felt like I was in my old home in New Orleans. She brought me back to that feeling of being at home in the South. Her ability to draw out suspense in conversation through well placed descriptions is so smart. I stopped and thought about it for a while and marveled.

That said, this is also a magnificent book of its own accord. I've been meaning to read it for ages and it didn't let me down. I have to crack the collected stories and just dig in. What a remarkable author.
