Facts on File
Widely acclaimed as one of the finest short story writers and known for her acerbic wit, complex themes, and acutely observed portrayals of the American South, Flannery O'Connor is a favorite among students, scholars, and general readers. Her stories "A Good Man Is Hard to Find" and "Everything That Rises Must Converge" are considered classics of the form, fusing the ludicrous and mundane with O'Connor's powerful explorations of redemption and morality. This collection of critical essays presents a chronology of O'Connor's life, a bibliography of her works, an index, and an introductory essay by literary critic Harold Bloom.
