In 1956, Caedmon had the great fortune to record Eudora Welty reading some of her finest stories. In her sweetly vibrant Mississippi drawl, Ms. Welty deftly draws the listener in to the uproariously multilayered "Why I Live at the P.O.," the spontaneous "Powerhouse" and the insightful voice of women's truths in "Petrified Man." Ms. Welty's reading brings immediacy and resonance to these wonderful tales.
I reckon this is the most soulful little morsel on the whole of the iTunes store. Let's hear from some more great Southern literary voices soon.
Eudora reads Eudora
What a great joy!! Let's have some more Southern writers reading their works. Katharine Anne Porter would be a great addition. Thank you so much!! Gerry Morgan, Auburn, AL.
Its great to hear Eudora Welty read her own work, but the download needs some kind of break between stories, like you would in between songs on a CD. As it is, the collection is very hard to navigate.
