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
