Summary

Summary

O Magazine Pick of 25 Books Every Woman Should Read in Her Lifetime

This is the collection that established Flannery O’Connor’s reputation as a one of the American masters of the short story.

This now classic book revealed Flannery O’Connor as one of the most original and provocative writers to emerge from the South. Her apocalyptic vision of life is expressed through grotesque, often comic situations in which the principal character faces a problem of salvation: the grandmother, in the title story, confronting the murderous Misfit; a neglected four-year-old boy looking for the Kingdom of Christ in the fast-flowing waters of the river; General Sash, about to meet the final enemy.

Stories include:

“The River”
“The Life You Save May Be Your Own”
“A Stroke of Good Fortune”
“A Temple of the Holy Ghost”
“The Artificial Nigger”
“A Circle in the Fire”
“A Late Encounter with the Enemy”
“Good Country People”
“The Displaced Person”

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Among America’s greatest short story writers ever (one of the country’s biggest story prizes is named after her) O’Connor’s often-nightmarish, always-enthralling spins on the Southern Gothic bloom with dark humor and deep compassion that belie the bleakness of her characters’ emotional and physical landscapes. In these ten indelible tales, undying faith commingles with cynicism, beauty with brutality, transformation with tradition, good country people with cold-blooded killers.” O, The Oprah Magazine
