about this book

On the first Sunday of August, three generations of Granny Vaughn's descendants gather at her home in Banner, Mississippi, to celebrate her ninetieth birthday. Many members of the family are great storytellers and when they get together, the temptation is irresistible--a device that enables Welty to take the reader back into the lost battles of the past, capturing different tones of voice and ways of thinking.
