Flannery: A Life of Flannery O'Connor Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The landscape of American literature was fundamentally changed when Flannery O'Connor stepped onto the scene with her first published book, @lt;em@gt;Wise Blood@lt;/em@gt;, in 1952. Her fierce, sometimes comic novels and stories reflected the darkly funny, vibrant, and theologically sophisticated woman who wrote them. Brad Gooch brings to life O'Connor's significant friendships--with Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Hardwick, Walker Percy, and James Dickey among others--and her deeply felt convictions, as expressed in her communications with Thomas Merton, Elizabeth Bishop, and Betty Hester. Hester was famously known as A in O'Connor's collected letters, @lt;em@gt;The Habit of Being@lt;/em@gt;, and a large cache of correspondence to her from O'Connor was made available to scholars, including Brad Gooch, in 2006. O'Connor's capacity to live fully--despite the chronic disease that eventually confined her to her mother's farm in Georgia--is illuminated in this engaging and authoritative biography.
