Expendable Mudge Muses Aloud

Revisiting a Favorite Read by Eudora Welty, a Favorite Author

One Writer's Beginnings (The William E. Massey Sr. Lectures in the History of American Civilization) - Eudora Welty

I love Southern American writing. It's almost always highly place-centered, meaning it could only take place in that one spot; this is very appealing to me. I like being FROM the South, and i *adore* not having to live there. I can get my fix in books!

 

At my blog http://tinyurl.com/mlqkhpp I praise very highly the Queen of Southern Writing, Miss Eudora Welty. I am in awe of and in love with her stories. This one happens to be her own story, told with great simplicity and bone-deep appreciation for her roots and her branches.
