About the Author
Eudora Welty (1909-2001) is the author of many novels and story collections, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Optimist's Daughter, Losing Battles, The Ponder Heart, The Robber Bridegroom, and A Curtain of Green and Other Stories, as well as collections of her photographic work Country Churchyards and One Time, One Place: Mississippi in the Depression, both published by University Press of Mississippi.
Reynolds Price, who wrote the foreword, detects in her short stories and novels the same 'instant indelible force' that we hope to find in a photograph--and do, in Ms. Welty's. . . . Above all, Ms. Welty stresses the importance of the subjects of her photographs.--New York Times
Welcome both as the definitive collection of Welty's pictures and as an important part of her career: the foundation upon which the great edifice was built.--Washington Post Book World
Welty's portraits uncovered dignity and even joy in these hard years.--People Weekly
Her literary legacy--not only her stories but her novels, essays, and reviews--traces the full arc of a writer's imagination. But the pictures bring us back to the time and the place it all began.--Smithsonian
Welty captured a way of life in spontaneous scenes as lyrical and atmospheric as her fiction.--Chicago Tribune
We are better too for the soft still moments, the occasional humor, the quiet inarticulateness of many of the faces Eudora Welty has shared with us from her family album; and we remain grateful for her enduring consummate artistic honesty.--Sewanee Review
This album of her black-and-white shots reveals a sensitivity to place augmented by a keen eye for drama.--Booklist
Thirty years after its publication, this defining monograph of the writer's photography has been revivified, thanks to digital scans of Welty's work. A new foreword by Natasha Trethewey joins Reynolds Price's original.--The New York Times Book Review, 5/17/2019
