Publisher's Summary

In 1956, Caedmon had the great fortune to record Eudora Welty reading some of her finest stories. In her sweetly vibrant Mississippi drawl, Ms. Welty deftly draws the listener in to the uproariously multilayered "Why I Live at the P.O.", the spontaneous "Powerhouse", and the insightful voice of women's truths in "Petrified Man". Ms. Welty's reading brings immediacy and resonance to these wonderful tales.

Lovely Stories

I have been a fan of Eudora Welty's for as long as I can remember, and I was quite excited about the prospect of hearing her reading her own exquisite short stories. It was wonderful to hear her voice, but the dear lady spoke so fast that it's very difficult to understand. Still,if you're a Welty fan, it's well worth a download. Enjoy.

Loved the author and a chance to hear her reading her own work.
However, this audio download is not the easiest to listen to.
The speed of this recording could be slowed down considerably if it is to be enjoyed.
