Description

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:
“A Good Man Is Hard to Find”
“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”

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

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.
