From the Back Cover:

“There has been in our time no more assiduous practitioner of fiction than Eudora Welty, and for the mystery that pervades her work and is her artistry there can be no explanation . . . only gratitude.” —The New York Times Book Review

 

Eudora Welty’s first novel, The Delta Wedding, is an American classic. Set in 1923, it is an exquisitely woven story, centered around the Fairchild family’s preparations for a wedding at their Mississippi plantation. Drama leads to drama, revelation to revelation, and the result is a sometimes-riotous portrait of a large and clamorous Southern family. In The Ponder Heart, a comic masterpiece, Miss Edna Earle Ponder, one of the few living members of a once prominent family, tells a traveling salesman the history of her family and fellow townsfolk.

 

Eudora Welty (1909–2001) was born in Jackson, Mississippi, and attended the Mississippi State College for Women, the University of Wisconsin, and Columbia University (where she studied advertising). In addition to short fiction, Welty wrote novels, essays, and reviews, and was a winner of the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize.
