Flannery is very UN-PC. Some colleges have banned her because of her use of the "n" word, and branding her a racist, but anyone who reads her work can't help but notice that its just the opposite. I think she would have been very surprised at that label. She wrote about what she observed in a morose picture that grabs the brain in early 50s south. Enjoy! =)

I LOVE O'Connor and own everything she wrote. She used to keep a copy of The Summa on her nightstand and read it every night.
Asked to explain why she wrote as she did, she explained (paraphrasing here) to the hard of seeing you write large and to the hard of hearing you yell. She described the south as Christ haunted. She was fantastic...
