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...
The church of Christ without Christ. Well, she was a prophet. John Huston was going to make a movie of WiseBlood. Did he? V's wife.

I agree. She was fantastic. Her quirkiness and brilliance are unbeatable. =)
