Overview

In Flannery OAÆConnorAÆs Dark Comedies Carol Shloss aims to return Flannery OAÆConnor to her readers on fathomable terms, to offer a rhetorical, rather than theological, perspective from which to understand the country preachers, square-jawed farm wives, wise rubes, foolish intellectuals, huckster Bible salesmen, killers, and other ôgood country peopleö who populate OAÆConnorAÆs fiction.
