Book two: The Optimist's Daughter by Eudora Welty

This might be the shortest Pulitzer Prize winning piece of literature I've ever read. A mere 180 pages. 2 down, 24 to go.

Favorite line:
"In sight of the door there was an iron bell mounted on a post. If anything were ever to happen, Grandma only needed to ring this bell. ... When, some time later, Laurel asked about the bell, her mother replied calmly that how good a bell was depended on the distance away your children had gone."
