Overview

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.

If you would like to spend time with this superlative storyteller, it's a special thrill to hear these stories interpreted in her own voice. The woman was a national treasure, and a special gift to her region. I was raised in that area, and stand amazed at her ability to capture its intricacies, of which there are so many. What a wonderful way to enjoy one of America's best writers!
