Summary
  • This is the first major biography of one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. It follows O'Connor from her insular childhood in Savannah, Georgia; to graduate school at the fledgling Iowa Writers' Workshop; to Yaddo, the artists' colony in upstate New York, where lifelong and influential friendships were formed; and, finally, to Andalusia, the family dairy farm in Milledgeville, Georgia. She died there at the age of thirty-nine, of lupus--the same ravaging autoimmune disease that killed her beloved father
  • An engaging and authoritative biography of Flannery O'Connor, who despite the chronic disease that eventually confined her to her mother's farm in Georgia, managed to fundamentally change the landscape of American literature with her fierce, sometimes comic novels and stories
Summary
Evaluates the ways in which the mid-twentieth-century novelist reflected American culture and influenced literature, and covers her relationships with contemporaries Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Hardwick, and James Dickey
