Too Good For Audio
(I've given fewer stars for performance, because some performances here are better than others).
Based on what I've been hearing on this recording, Eudora Welty may be the best American writer of the 20th Century. (For me, for my taste) Hard to tell. So I've got to read her on the page. I've bought this book, now, from Amazon. I can't listen to it anymore because I want to constantly stop, go back, and read stuff over, asking, "WHAT did she just say?!." I can't believe an American writer I haven't read before (I'm old and I've been reading all my life) can be so impossibly good.
Usually I LISTEN to books to escape. Audio is fine for that. But this is escape of a different kind entirely. It's a glimpse into the real world made magical by descriptions that make you catch your breath. I may change my mind after pursuing her onto the page. I don't think so, though.

great stories, uneven readers
I was initially appalled by the arch and phoney accent of the initial narrator reading Welty's preface. Happily most of the readings are better than that, some of them actually quite good. The stories themselves, it it almost needless to say, are varied and splendid.
