The quintessential Southern writer, O'Connor wrote fiercely comic, powerful fiction. This anthology includes the masterpieces Wise Blood. The Violent Bear it Away, and Everything that Rises Must Converge.

Flannery O'Connor's provocative and critically-acclaimed works have established her reputation as one of America's most original authors, and three of them are available in this collection: "Wise Blood, The Violent Bear It Away" and "Everything That Rises Must Converge". Afterword by author Dorothy Allison.

The best thing about Flannery O’Connor is her unique ability to make the reader feel gleefully uncomfortable. Sometimes drifting into the gothic and always set in her “Christ-haunted” South, the clichéd description of her characters being emotionally, if not physically, grotesque is still nonetheless an accurate one. And though often compared with fellow southerner William Faulkner, she’s not only easier to read but her rare gift of staring unabashedly into man’s soul without making any moral judgments is just as powerful and just as engaging. It’s unfortunate that she’s often overlooked in the cannon of American literature.
Three by Flannery O’Connor includes not only her two novels, Wise Blood and The Violent Bear it Away, but it also features a collection of her lesser-known short stories. It’s worth getting this book just for The Violent Bear it Away, the story about a backwoods teenager who comes to the city after his grandfather dies. The book reads almost like a car accident; knowing O’Connor, you suspect the scene will be an ugly, disturbing one, but you’re still unable to stop yourself from turning the page.
