Editorial Reviews

Eudora Welty
"They seem as perfect, and as functional for all their beauty, has spider webs. Indeed they were made for like purpose: to trap and disect living morsels in the form of palpitating moments of time, instantaneous perceptions, of brief visions of others who were to give us uncaptured, breathing, even struggling in so betrend themselves - an illusion of life. The extreme beauty of her writing is due greatly to one fact, that the imprisionment of life and the words have as much a matter of the senses Virginia Wolf's as it was a concern of the intellect." -- The New York Times Book Review
