Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

This story of a young woman's confrontation with death and her past is a poetic study of human relations.


Review:

"[This novel] which first appeared in The New Yorker of March 15, 1969, is a miracle of compression, the kind of book, small in scope but profound in its implications, that rewards a lifetime of work....Its story has all those qualities peculiar to the finest short novels: a theme that vibrates with overtones, suspense and classical inevitability....[Laurel's] childhood days at Becky's mountaintop house in West Virginia, which recall Becky's childhood as well, are the most beautiful passages in the Welty canon, extraordinary passages in an extraordinary book....The best book Eudora Welty has ever written, [this] is a long goodbye in a very short space not only to the dead but to delusion and to sentiment as well."

Howard Moss, New York Times Book Review, 05/21/1972

Review:

"The contrast between the effusive sentiment of the old neighbors and the insensitive curiosity of the strangers is shocking comedy, amusing to the ear, infuriating to Laurel, and the most skillful piece of comedy."

Edward Weeks, Atlantic Monthly, June 1972
