I can appreciate Welty's writing, but this book just didn't capture my attention. It's a slim novel (under 200 pages) and won the Pullitzer prize for fiction in 1972. Not much happens, but then, I suppose that is the point. When you can sum up a person by stating "I know his whole family," what else is there?
