This now classic book revealed Flannery O'Connor as one of the most original and provocative writers to emerge from the South. Her apocalyptic vision of life is expressed through grotesque, often comic situations in which the principal character faces a problem of salvation: the grandmother, in the title story, confronting the murderous Misfit; a neglected four-year-old boy looking for the Kingdom of Christ in the fast-flowing waters of the river; General Sash, about to meet the final enemy. Stories include: A Good Man Is Hard to FindThe RiverThe Life You Save May Be Your OwnA Stroke of Good FortuneA Temple of the Holy GhostThe Artificial NiggerA Circle in the FireA Late Encounter with the EnemyGood Country PeopleThe Displaced Person This is the collection that established Flannery O'Connor's reputation as a one of the American masters of the short story.
