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.
