The next day, the town shifts into grieving mode when the elderly schoolteacher Julia Mortimer dies. Eudora Welty's long third novel relies heavily on dialogue to tell its story--which is about a family and all its ramifications, but also about the passing of an entire way of life. Published on Welty's own 61st birthday (April 9, 1970), LOSING BATTLES, which was nominated for a National Book Award, became her biggest-selling novel.Hide synopsis
