Now in trade paperback, Brad Gooch's critically acclaimed biography of one of America's literary greats. The landscape of American literature was fundamentally changed when Flannery O'Connor stepped onto the scene with her first published book, Wise Blood, in 1952. Her fierce, sometimes comic novels and stories reflected the darkly funny, vibrant, and theologically sophisticated woman who wrote them.
Brad Gooch brings to life O'Connor's significant friendships-with Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Hardwick, Walker Percy, and James Dickey among others-and her deeply felt convictions, as expressed in her communications with Thomas Merton, Elizabeth Bishop, and Betty Hester. O'Connor's capacity to live fully-despite the chronic disease that eventually confined her to her mother's farm in Georgia-is illuminated in this engaging and authoritative biography.
