Overview

In this varied collection of commemorative essays, fiction, and poetry, some of today's most important writers pay tribute to the genius of Flannery O'Connor. The seventy-fifth anniversary of O'Connor's birth is the occasion for tributes from both those who called O'Connor a friend and those who have learned from her as students through the timelessness of her written word. The diversity and avidity of those who revere O'Connor as an artist is testimony to the genius of a woman whose continuing influence extends well beyond the insularity of her world and brevity of her life.
