A Good Man Is Hard to Find and Other Stories

Flannery O'Connor (Author) Lauren Groff (Introduction by)
Available

Description

In 1955, with this short story collection, Flannery O'Connor firmly laid claim to her place as one of the most original and provocative writers of her generation. Steeped in a Southern Gothic tradition that would become synonymous with her name, these stories show O'Connor's unique view of life--infused with religious symbolism, haunted by apocalyptic possibility, sustained by the tragic comedy of human behavior, confronted by the necessity of salvation.

These classic stories--including "The Life You Save May Be Your Own," "Good Country People," "The Displaced Person," and seven other acclaimed tales--are sure to inspire a new generation of Flannery O'Connor lovers, and remind existing readers why she remains a master of the short story.
