Essential Welty: Powerhouse and Petrified Man
Date: June 2006
Duration: 1 hours 40 minutes
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.
