(PUBOrbis)Using brutal irony and humor, O'Connor wrote of society's outcasts: the deformed, freaks, and Baptist healers. To the hard of hearing you must shout and for the almost blind you must draw large and startling figures. Well-chosen excerpts from her fiction and collected letters. 160 pages, softcover.

    Book Reflections

    I wanted to begin my review with Book Reflections because I believe most people will not take the time to read a book review of a biography/Compilation of writings of an author that they have never heard of it. Another reason I begin this way is because many of those who may take the time to read her may dismiss her because she was a Catholic. O'Connor has a great deal to teach us in regards to the difficulty of grace. O'Connor's writings will provoke conversation, discussion, and deep thought. O'Connor's stories will stick with you and challenge your interpretation of reality. O'Connor also has many lessons to teach aspiring authors. O'Connor takes writing and the thoughts behind writing to a level that most will never reach. I highly encourage you to buy everything that you can of O'Connor. Many of O'Connor's short stories are available for free online. Pick up and read!

    Book Review

    Robert Ellsberg does a fantastic job of bringing together Flannery O'Connor's Spiritual Writings. Ellsberg pulls from various stories, letters, articles, and essays by O'Connor (e.g. Mystery & Manners, Wise Blood, The Presence of Grace, ect). The book covers that which influenced O'Connor, in her own words. The book also demonstrates O'Connor's influence and necessity of the church within her writing. Finally, and most importantly the book demonstrates O"Connor's contribution to writing itself. O'Connor is worth reading, even if you only read her Mystery and Manners. Mystery and Manner is a book about how to write. O'Connor will cause you to take the next step into the lives of the characters, which you may be writing about. Large chunks of Mystery and Manners can be found throughout the book. If you have never read O'Conner this is a great introduction to her works. Richard Giannone writes the introduction to the book giving the reader a thorough back to the life of Flannery. Giannone also does an exceptional job introducing her works and allowing the reader to see the context of her writing. From the introduction the reader leaves well equipped to take on O'Conner's works as a whole. Upon completion of each chapter you feel like you are left with a theatrical teaser and longing for more. Ellsberg also does a great job bringing O'Conner's lasting quotes to the forefront throughout the summary.
