Flannery O'Connor discovered initimations of divinity not in the lives of saints, but in wickedly funny tales of human misfits who, through peculiar and often violent turns of events, run up against the limits of worldly wisdom. Her complete works are presented here for the first time in a single volume. Included are two novels, Wise Blood and The Violent Bear It Away; her short story collections, A Good Man Is Hard to Find and Everything That Rises Must Converge; and nine additional stories, selected essays, and 259 witty, spirited, and revealing letters, several never before published.
