Las batallas perdidas by Eudora Welty

With a steely comic vein, this account tells the story of three generations of descendants of the eccentric Granny Vaughn who gather in her old home in Mississippi to celebrate her 90th birthday during the hardest times of the Depression. The guest of honor will be Granny Vaughn's favorite grandson, Jack Renfro, who—not one to miss the celebration—has escaped from prison where he was expected to be released the next day. This fascinating novel describes family secrets that are mixed with stories of loss and are passed from parents to offspring, and examines a rich tapestry of a South that no longer exists.

Con una vena cómica dura, este relato cuenta la historia de tres generaciones de descendientes de la excéntrica abuela Vaughn que se reúnen en su antiguo hogar en Misisipi para celebrar su nonagésimo cumpleaños en los momentos más duros de la Depresión. El invitado de honor será el nieto favorito de la abuela Vaughn, Jack Renfro, quien—para no perderse la celebración—se ha escapado de la cárcel donde esperaba ser liberado al día siguiente. Esta novela fascinante describe los secretos de familia que se mezclan con historias de pérdida y que se pasan de padres a hijos y examina un rico tapiz de un Sur que ya no existe.
