A Good Man Is Hard to Find: And Other Stories [With Earbuds]

O'Connor, Flannery / Gavin, Marguerite
A Good Man Is Hard to Find: And Other Stories [With Earbuds]

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 riv...

Everything That Rises Must Converge: Stories

O'Connor, Flannery / Fitzgerald, Robert / Fitzgerald, Robert
Everything That Rises Must Converge: Stories
Flannery O'Connor was working on Everything That Rises Must Converge at the time of her death. This collection is an exquisite legacy from a genius of the American short story, in which she scrutinizes territory familiar to her readers: race, faith, and morality. The stories encompass the comic and the tragic, the beautiful and the grotesque, each carries her highly individual stamp and could have been written by no one else.

The Habit of Being: Letters of Flannery O'Connor

O'Connor, Flannery / Fitzgerald, Sally
The Habit of Being: Letters of Flannery O'Connor
Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Special Award"I have come to think that the true likeness of Flannery O'Connor will be painted by herself, a self-portrait in words, to be found in her letters . . . There she stands, a phoenix risen from her own words: calm, slow, funny, courteous, both modest and very sure of herself, intense, sharply penetrating, devout but never pietistic, downright, occasionally fierce, and honest in a way that r...

This Library of America collection, the most comprehensive ever published, contains all of her novels and sho...

Il cielo è dei violenti
Sapeva di avere la stoffa dei fanatici e dei pazzi, e di esser sfuggito al suo destino quasi con la sola forza di volontà. Si teneva ritto su una linea sottilissima, tra la pazzia e il vuoto". Una fede ossessiva, fanatica e violenta e una ragione arida e repressa, "spazio nudo e lindo come la cella di un manicomio", ecco la pazzia e il vuoto entro cui i tre personaggi di questo libro muovono passi estremi, inquieti, disperati. Un vecchio eremi...
