Flannery O'Connor's Radical Realityby Jan Nordby Gretlund
Flannery O'Connor's Radical Reality brings together essays by a number of distinguished O'Connor scholars, four of whom were the writer's friends, to assess the impact of the political, religious, and social milieu of her time on novels and short stories that consistently attract interpretive attention and are rediscovered by new generations of readers. The contributors mark the current terrain of scholarship on the wry Georgian writer and open new avenues for future explorations in O'Connor's work.
