The Golden Apples
Here is Eudora Welty's classic portrait of a Mississippi town-where, as one inhabitant says, time goes like a dream no matter how hard you run. In Morgana, the young think of other places and the old know every name on every stone in the cemetery at the town's edge. Young and old, black and white, married and spinster, restless or settled, the voices that make up this collection of interrelated stories prove that Welty, as Katherine Anne Porter once wrote, had an ear sharp, shrewd, and true as a tuning fork. Like James Joyce's Dubliners and Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio, The Golden Apples, though it gives readers a particular time and place, is both timeless and universal.
I doubt that a better book about 'the South'--one that more completely gets the feel of the particular texture of Southern life, and its special tone and pattern--has ever been written.-Original review, September 3, 1949, The New Yorker
A work of art . . . the original creation of an invaluable artist.-The New York Times Book Review
