This collection combines stories set in Welty's special province, the rural South, with stories having a European locale. This gives a wider range to her fiction and demonstrates the remarkable talent of one of the finest short-story writers of our time. "Humorous, piquant, graceful" (Louis D. Rubin, Jr., Sewanee Review).

Collection of short stories by Eudora Welty, published in 1955. The seven stories, focused largely on female characters, elaborate upon tenuous relationships of the heart in a difficult world and upon the importance of place; they share a more experimental, allusive style than the rest of her work. -- The Merriam-Webster Encylopedia of Literature
