With a preface written by the author especially for this edition, this is the complete collection of stories by Eudora Welty. Including the earlier collections A Curtain of Green , The Wide Net , The Golden Apples , and The Bride of the Innisfallen , as well as previously uncollected ones, these forty-one stories demonstrate Eudora Welty's talent for writing from diverse points-of-view with "vision that is sweet by nature, always humanizing, uncannily objective, but never angry" ( Washington Post ).
