A Biography of Flannery O'Connor

"Flannery: A Life of Flannery O'Connor" will be the first major literary biography of a fascinating and increasingly influential American twentieth-century author. Balancing her background as a Roman Catholic writer, living in middle Georgia, confined to her mother's dairy farm by the lupus from which she died at 39 years old, she wrote two novels as well as two collections of short stories considered masterpieces of the form. O'Connor was chosen as the first postwar figure included in the canonic Library of American series, and is widely taught today in colleges and universities.
