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

Meet the Author

Flannery O'Connor was born in Savannah, Georgia, in 1925, and died in 1964, at the age of 39. Despite her short life, she transformed American fiction with her two novels and 32 short stories, which relied heavily on regional settings and grotesque characters to probe moral and religious issues. She is best known for her story "A Good Man Is Hard to Find," which appeared in a book of the same name. Posthumously compiled, the Complete Stories won the 1972 U.S. National Book Award for Fiction.
