Description

In 1955, with this short story collection, Flannery O&;Connor firmly laid claim to her place as one of the most original and provocative writers of her generation. Steeped in a Southern Gothic tradition that would become synonymous with her name, these stories show O&;Connor&;s unique view of life&;infused with religious symbolism, haunted by apocalyptic possibility, sustained by the tragic comedy of human behavior, confronted by the necessity of salvation.

These classic stories&;including &;The Life You Save May Be Your Own,&; &;Good Country People,&; &;The Displaced Person,&; and seven other acclaimed tales&;are sure to inspire a new generation of Flannery O&;Connor lovers, and remind existing readers why she remains a master of the short story.
