9780141196275: Moon Lake (Penguin Mini Modern Classics)

'"Watch out for the mosquitoes," they called to one another, lyrically because warning wasn't any use anyway, as they walked out of their kimonos and dropped them like the petals of one big scattered flower on the bank behind them, and exposing themselves felt in a hundred places at once the little pangs.'

Moon Lake is the story of a summer camp in Mississippi, a surly lifeguard, a rebellious orphan girl, and the fateful day when they learn the secrets of life and death. Pulitzer Prize-winner Eudora Welty's extraordinary short story is a lushly atmospheric and acutely observed portrayal of the strange, surreal time between childhood and adulthood.

About the Author:

Eudora Welty was born in Jackson, Mississippi in 1909. Her work for the Works Progress Administration during the Great Depression gave her unique insight into the lives of Americans living in the South during this troubled time. She wrote widely about the area and won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1973 for The Optimist's Daughter, and the Rea Award for the Short Story in 1992. She was a charter member of the Fellowship of Southern Writers and also taught creative writing. She died in 2001.
