Anyone else like Flannery O'Conner's short stories and novels?
How did you originally come across her work. Was it through "Christian" sources (church friends, a mention in a sermon/Christian school) or was it through school/university or personal reading.
I'm kind of interested to see how well her work in accepted in conservative Christian circles.
IMO, her short story "Revelation" is one of the best pieces of fiction (religious or otherwise) I have ever read. Simple, profound and biblical all at once.
I really don't remember how I first found her.
I've always been into Southern lit and I guess it's just from that.
Well, I can't imagine that they'd go over well here on BB because there's such a strong anti-Catholic bias and she was a devout Catholic and her work was heavily infulenced by Catholic teaching.
I think that's a shame, since her writing contains a lot of themes about redemption and grace that the church needs to hear.
I agree, it's very good.
I don't know if I have a favorite but I guess "A Good Man id Hard to Find" is her biggest.
