Editorial Reviews

Alfred Kazin
She was not just the best 'woman writer' of this time and place; she expressed something secret about America, called 'the South,' with that transcendent gift for expressing the real spirit of a culture that is conveyed by those writers�who become nothing but what they see. Completeness is one word for it: relentlessness unsparingness would be others. She was a genius.
— Alfred Kazin, The New York Times Book Review

Before Fight Club did it, Flannery O'Connor was making us think about violence and its place in the human experience. We recoil from violence, but it sometimes brings about needed transformation. Few authors--especially female--have effectively captured this possibility in their fiction. These books make you squirm and shake you up. It is a shame we lost O'Connor so young and even more of a shame she isn't read that much anymore outside of a few anthologized stories. Treat yourself, but brace yourself.
