Blurbs:
  • "Like any great writer, Miss O'Connor had her obsessive themes and her special provenance, which becomes abundantly clear when her stories are read in toto. Yet the fecundity of her imagination saved her from being merely repetitious, and each story has its peculiar ambiance and personality. Taken together, they offer an unparalleled picture of the Deep South—at once horrifying and hilarious—as a metaphor for the general human condition when the 20th century lurched past its halfway mark." Richard Freedman, Book World
  • "What we lost when she died is bitter. What we have is astonishing: the stories burn brighter than ever, and strike deeper." Walter Clemons, Newsweek
  • "She was not just the best 'woman writer' of this time and place; she expressed something secret about America, called 'the South,' with that transcendent gift for expressing the real spirit of a culture that is conveyed by those writers... who become nothing but what they see. Completeness is one word for it: relentlessness, unsparingness would be others. She was a genius." Alfred Kazin, The New York Times Book Review
  • "I don't think of Hemingway, or Katherine Anne Porter, or Sartre, but rather of someone like Sophocles... I write her name with honor, for all the truth and all the craft with which she shows man's fall and dishonor." Thomas Merton
