Description

Set on the Mississippi Delta in 1923, this story captures the mind and manners of the Fairchilds, a large aristocratic family, self-contained and elusive as the wind. The vagaries of the Fairchilds are keenly observed, and sometimes harshly judged, by nine-year-old Laura McRaven, a Fairchild cousin who takes The Yellow Dog train to the Delta for Dabney Fairchild's wedding. An only child whose mother has just died, Laura is resentful of her boisterous, careless cousins, and desperate for their acceptance. As the hour moves closer and closer to wedding day, Laura arrives at a more subtle understanding of both the Fairchilds and herself. Born in 1909 in Jackson, Mississippi, Eudora Welty is one of the South's finest novelists. She won a Pulitzer in 1972 for The Optimist's Daughter. Delta Wedding is her best known work.

Professional reviews

"The Mississippi Delta of the early '20's sets a beautiful stage for Eudora Welty's novel of life and manners in the Fairchild family. Welty's eloquent prose captures every visual aspect of the Fairchilds' world. Sally Darling articulates each speech pattern and draws the characters and scenes even more completely with her voice. Her cadence is perfect and elicits the atmosphere of heat and langour with finesse. Each character is carefully drawn by the exceptional combination of voice and text. This title adds a masterpiece to performance literature and amplifies the fine collection of Southern literature from Recorded Books this season. R.F.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
