"To compare her with the great letter writers of our language may seem presumptuous and would have elicited from her one of her famous steely glances, but Byron, Keats, Lawrence, Wilde, and Joyce come irresistibly to mind: correspondence that gleams with consciousness,"---New York Times. "Remarkable and inspiring,"---Kirkus Reviews. 368 pages, hardcover.
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.
The Complete Stories is a collection of thirty-one stories written in Flannery O'Connor's short lifetime. Arranged chronologically, these stories are some of the most powerful and disturbing fiction of the twentieth century. Known for her mix of comedy and tragedy, she was profoundly influenced by her background of being a Catholic in a predominantly Bible-Belt Protestant region. Paperback.
(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.
