There are a lot of different kinds of fiction writers, so it's really impossible to claim one as the 'Best,' but for my money Eudora Welty wrote some of the best fiction America has ever produced. From a pure storytelling level, Eudora Welty can only be equaled, never bested, and even then only rarely. Maybe you don't get the action and genre fireworks found elsewhere, but you get more humanity, though without gross sentimentality. Her characters are the most precisely drawn I have ever read and her plots are real, never overbearing. She will always be at the top of my list, bar none.

This will now be the fourth time I've purchased this book for myself in my lifetime. I give it away, or lose it all over. I would buy it again just for the story 'Powerhouse'. One of my favorites in the English language. Maybe I be back for a fifth. I hope they sell this in the afterlife. I'd buy it there too!

I was first introduced to Eudora Welty in college and I find her writing a continual joy. Its a must for teen reading, or any reader in any season of their life.
