Eudora Welty is a beloved institution of Southern fiction and American literature, whose closely guarded privacy has prevented a full-scale study of her life and work--until now.

A significant contribution to the world of letters, Ann Waldron's biography chronicles the history and achievements of one of our greatest living authors, from a Mississippi childhood to the sale of her first short story, from her literary friendships with Katherine Anne Porter and Elizabeth Bowen to her rivalry with Carson McCullers.

Elegant and authoritative, this first biography to chart the life of a national treasure is a must-have for Welty fans and scholars everywhere.

Review:

"A judicious account, written against the odds...[Eudora Welty] is lucky that Ann Waldron is her first biographer."
--The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"A biography of admirable and considerable detail...engaging and well researched."
--Chicago Tribune

"Waldron paints an appealing portrait of this shy, yet gifted storyteller."
--The Christian Science Monitor

"Rich in detail and anecdote, this is an elegant and worthwhile book about an amiable woman who has become one of America's greatest writers."
--The Tampa Tribune

"Fans of Eudora Welty should not miss this."
--The Oklahoman (Oklahoma City)

"A lively chronicle....Waldron draws persuasive conclusions about Welty's secrets."
--The Commercial Appeal (Memphis)

"Adds dimension and context to Welty's carefully protected image....By the end of Waldron's carefully researched treatise, Welty emerges even more of a heroine, even more beloved than she was before."
--The Miami Herald

"Truly impressive....At last, a solid foundation is in place."
--Trenton Times

"Evenhanded and respectful....A good introduction to one of our greatest living writers."
--Houston Chronicle
