    1 thought on “Essential Welty: Why I Live at the P.O., A Memory, Powerhouse and Petrified Man”

    1. Three stories read by Eudora Welty herself, which is a tremendous treat. The first, 'Why I Live at the P.O.' was sped up considerably, presumably to 'fit' onto the CD with the other two stories but keep it to the one hour limit. Shame. It was so fast that the voice was high pitched and gabbled some, and the subtleties of the story were consequently a bit lost. But after a few minutes you do get an 'ear' for it and enjoy the humour. 'Powerhouse' and 'Petrified Man' were in Miss Welty's normal voi [...]

    2. For this audiobook, Eudora Welty reads three of her classic stories: Why I Live at the P.O Powerhouse, and The Petrified Man. It was delightful to hear Ms. Welty’s voice, and the reading highlights her wonderful ear for language and dialogue as well as a mischievous sense of humor. The first story was read at a faster pace than the others, but I think the speed fits the personality of the story’s narrator. The audiobook is based on an old LP.

    3. This is an audio collection of three short stories read by the author Eudora Welty. I know I read "Why I Live at the P.O."in college, though all I remembered was that I liked it. I liked it this time as well, and enjoyed hearing the author tell the story though she spoke so fast it was hard to understand at times with the strong dialect. I suspect they may have sped up the recording slightly to make it fit on one CD. The other two stories were more of the literary slice of life/ character study [...]

    4. This is an "audiobook" that is very short, just over an hour, which Ms. Welty reads herself. I took a Southern Literature class my senior year of high school and fell in love with Flannery O'Conner and her. Shortly thereafter I got to hear Ms. Welty speak and read some of her work at an event in Chattanooga. Her rich voice is the sweet sound that make the truth more than just bearable, and even in her at times uncomfortable honesty I found myself hoping there was more.

    5. A real treat to hear Miss Eudora read her work, esp. the first story, "Why I Live at the P.O.". Though read VERY fast, I get that this speed for this particular story was, well, essential. She does NOT read the other three stories at such a rapid-fire pace.Disappointing in that it offers only FOUR stories.

    6. I thought that "Why I Live at the PO" was really funny and would rate 4-5 stars, but I had a hard time engaging with "Powerhouse" or "Petrified Man", and my mind kept wandering. As other reviewers have said, she reads the short stories very quickly.

    7. She read too fast for me to follow!! Could not listen to this. God help me if I lose my vision and have to rely on audio books to "read."

    8. Welty reading "Why I Live at the P.O." is a gem - evocative, lively, peculiar, and very funny. Of the other two stories, "Petrified Man" is also good.

    9. Listened to the author read these on CD. As another reviewer has said, she talks really fast!! I also liked "Why I live at the PO" best. Welty's characters are salty and sassy. I dig it.
