Lover of the Fancy

Early C20th American culture and dissent

The Wide Net and Other Stories
Eudora Welty


“These eight stories reveal the singular imaginative power of one of America’s most admired writers. Set in the Old Natchez Trace region, the stories dip in and out of history and range from virgin wilderness to a bar in New Orleans. In each story, Miss Welty sustains the high level of performance that, throughout her distinguished career, has won her numerous literary awards. Miss Welty runs a photofinish with the finest prose artists of her time.” – Time magazine
