Wise Blood by Flannery O'Connor
Wise Blood

The Book Fairy, March 30, 2007

Excruciatingly grotesque. This novel is to literature what coprology is to medicine: fascinating, hideous, and ultimately meaningless. There is not one redeeming virtue in any of the characters. Their illogical thinking results (logically) in bizarre, but hardly amusing, behavior. If I had to live among such folk, I would blind myself, too. "Muvseevum" may be the only worthwhile word in the book.
