Reviews

This is one of those rare books that should appeal to readers who love classic fiction and those with a strong interest in Christian theology. I admired Jessica Hooten Wilson's readings of both O'Connor and Dostoevsky--muscular, intelligent criticism, written with a passion for the worlds they conjure. It's splendid work, provocative, and deeply satisfying.
--Jay Parini, author of The Last Station and Jesus: The Human Face of God

How refreshing it is--and how necessary--to read criticism that gets us down to the real stakes of moral existence. Wilson brings us Dostoevsky and O'Connor in their full profundity of faith and recognition of evil. This is just the right approach for college students awash in the trivia of youth culture, reminding them that their own lives can have a richer meaning.
--Mark Bauerlein, Professor of English, Emory University
