With a preface written by the author especially for this edition, this is the complete collection of stories by Eudora Welty.

Including the earlier collections "A Curtain of Green," "The Wide Net," "The Golden Apples," and "The Bride of the Innisfallen," as well as previously uncollected ones, these forty-one stories demonstrate Eudora Welty's talent for writing from diverse points-of-view with vision that is sweet by nature, always humanizing, uncannily objective, but never angry ("Washington Post").
