A Curtain of Green, the first collection of Eudora Welty's short stories to be published, won her immediate recognition as one of the most gifted of American writers. Among its seventeen titles are such famous stories as "Why I Live at the P.O.," "Powerhouse," "Petrified Man," and "Keela, the Outcast Indian Maiden." Also included is Katherine Anne Porter's historic introduction, which presented a relatively new writer to the American public in 1941. By now Miss Welty is a national treasure and this collection, a classic.
