In her now-famous creation to the gathering, Katherine Anne Porter wrote that “there is even within the smallest tale a feeling of energy in reserve which makes me think firmly that, most excellent starting that it truly is, it is just a beginning.”
during this assortment are the various tales that experience develop into stated masterpieces: the hilarious over-the-top relatives drama that drives a small-town green with envy postmistress to give an explanation for “Why I dwell on the P.O.”; the deeply enjoyable thwarting of a trio of busybodies by means of a “feeble-minded” younger lady in “Lily Daw and the 3 Ladies”; the poignant pilgrimage of aged Phoenix Jackson in “A Worn Path”; and the boldly experimental and jubilantly playful literary improvisation of “Powerhouse,” encouraged by means of a functionality Eudora Welty observed by way of fat Waller.
Porter additional that “[Welty] has easily a watch and an ear sharp, wise, and precise as a tuning fork.” just like the jazz tunes Powerhouse bangs out at the piano, Welty’s tales stay as clean, alive, and unpredictable this day as once they first appeared.
“Miss Welty’s tales are deceptively easy. they're considering traditional humans, yet what occurs to them and the style of the telling are faraway from ordinary.”—The New Yorker
