(From the publisher):
A CURTAIN OF GREEN is Eudora Welty's first collection of short stories, 17 in all and many of them set--like most of her work--in the South. These tales reflect Welty's famous "writer's eye," honed while she traveled Mississippi in the mid-1930s as a photographer for the WPA. Perhaps the most well-known stories here are "Why I Live at the P.O.," which features the hilariously self-pitying Sister, who chooses isolation and eccentricity over life with her family, and "Death of a Traveling Salesman," about the lonely life (and equally lonely death) of a shoe salesman named R.J. Bowman. The volume also includes "Lilly Daw and the Three Ladies," "Petrified Man," "A Piece of News," "Clytie," and "A Worn Path."
