    Exiled From Eden I don t always have the aptitude and the patience paradoxically for short fiction, but O Connor has a way of connecting all her stories by setting them in a landscape that refuses to leave you The stories and the unease stay with you as you finish each grotesque piece, building up layer upon layer of despair until you thirst for an almost religious release from it all.Peopled

    A Good Man is Hard to Find A family strikes out on a road trip to Florida, knowing that an escaped convict is on the looseWhat a kick ass tale to open the collection Flannery O Connor had to be an influence of sorts on Jim Thompson, as this reads a lot like a condensed version of one of his stories She would have been a good woman if it had been somebody there to shoot her every minute of her life

    I am developing quite an addiction for the Southern flavor of American literature, and reading my first short story collection by Flannery O Connor isthan just adding fuel to the flame of my interest She is surpassing all my expectations and constantly going beyond the surface of things to touch on personal trauma that is often as unavoidable, tragic and soul reaving as a Greek tragedy I am not sure if I should use th

    First things first, O Connor did exactly what she intended to do here It s not a failure by any stretch if, at times, close cropped and uneven Whatever she s doing, cruel and unusual, she s good at it But dear God, it just happens to be the exact kind of thing that revolts something deep down in my gut I m usually all on board with the creepy, crazy, what have you, but the difference here is that nobody is even alive before the
