    MOBI Eudora Welty ´ The Optimist's Daughter Kindle º The Optimist's PDF ´ optimist's pdf, daughter mobile, The Optimist's pdf, The Optimist's Daughter ePUBEudora Welty 1909 2001 She was 92 when she died A life that spanned almost the entirety of the 20th century A lifetime of writing achievement crowned by her masterpiece The Optimist's Daughter She was 64 when it won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1973 Many readers overlook Welty or disregard her work because it is stuffed into a certain genre Southern Literature which limits her exposure But life is life and people are people and Welty had the innate skill to bring the complexities and nuances of everyday life to her characters in a way that very few writers are able to do And that is what is most evident in The Optimist's Daughter In a relatively short novel she compresses the lives of four people on to the pages so skillfully so completely that you come to know them and understand them

    MOBI Eudora Welty ´ The Optimist's Daughter Kindle º The Optimist's PDF ´ optimist's pdf, daughter mobile, The Optimist's pdf, The Optimist's Daughter ePUBIt's not easy becoming an orphan at any age Suddenly your safety net is gone You are adrift And no one will ever call you son or daughter againJust like me Laurel was a middle aged woman when she was orphaned Unlike me Laurel had to cope not only with the death of her father but the persistent and annoying presence of her evil new stepmother Fay Just how awful is Fay? As pesky as a gnat and as prone to tantrums as a spoiled child she is undoubtedly irritating Nothing passes without Fay having to comment on it and as Welty explains Her flattery and disparagement sounded just alike When her husband Judge McKelva is diagnosed with a slipped retina she declares I don't see why this had to happen to me Annoying as Fay is she's a great character and the book could not exist without her Her embarrassment over the arrival of her white trash relatives from Tex

    MOBI Eudora Welty ´ The Optimist's Daughter Kindle º The Optimist's PDF ´ optimist's pdf, daughter mobile, The Optimist's pdf, The Optimist's Daughter ePUBWhile I do tend to take my sweet time moseying toward a review after finishing a book stewing both over and in my thoughts for often days at a time before taking the perfectionist's route to laboring over my words or slapping some observations together to see what sticks and hoping that no one points out the crooked seams or varicolored threads trying to sort and figure out what I want to say about The Optimist's Daughter was an especially difficult task It wasn't until Mark who is often exactly what I need to pry a sticky thought loose from the place where things elude elucidation thanks Mark left a comment on the in progress version of this review that I saw where the difficulties lie The problem was not as I mistakenly believed at first the unfortunate truth that it is mighty hard talking about a much loved book beyond HOLY MOTHE
