Overview

Además de sus extraordinarios cuentos, Flannery O'Connor, unas de las escritoras fundamentales del siglo XX, publicó también dos novelas excelentes, ahora reunidas, por primera vez en castellano, en este volumen.

Sangre sabia, publicada en 1952, cuenta la historia de Hazel Motes quien, tras servir en el ejército, regresa al evangélico y profundo sur de los Estados Unidos. Allí empieza a librar una guerra privada contra la religiosidad de la comunidad y, en particular, contra Asa Hawkes, el predicador y su degenerada hija quinceañera. Presa de la desesperación, Hazel encuentra su propia religión, La Iglesia sin Cristo.

En 1960, O'Connor publicaba su segunda y última novela, Los violentos lo arrebatan, donde el huérfano Francis Marion Tarwater y su sobrino, el maestro de escuela Rayber, desafían la profecía de su difunto tío según la cual Tarwater se convertirá en profeta. A partir de entonces, Tarwater vive una íntima batalla entre su fe innata y las voces que le llaman a ser profeta, mientras Rayber trata de llevarle a un mundo más razonable y moderno.

Lúcida y tormentosa, radical y sobrecogedora, la obra de Flannery O'Connor constituye una de las aventuras más intensas de la literatura de todos los tiempos.
