From label back: "Eudora Welty, one of America's great storytellers, relates, in her sweetly vibrant Mississippi drawl, five of her finest stories. From the uproariously irreverent ‘Why I Live at the P.O.' and the quieter, richly perceptive ‘A Memory' and ‘A Worn Path,' to the spontaneous ‘Powerhouse' and the insightful voice of women's truths in ‘Petrified Man,' Welty opens up her stories and invites the listener in."
