9780374515362: The Complete Stories

Winner of the National Book Award


The publication of this extraordinary volume firmly established Flannery O'Connor's monumental contribution to American fiction. There are thirty-one stories here in all, including twelve that do not appear in the only two story collections O'Connor put together in her short lifetime--Everything That Rises Must Converge and A Good Man Is Hard to Find.


O'Connor published her first story, "The Geranium," in 1946, while she was working on her master's degree at the University of Iowa. Arranged chronologically, this collection shows that her last story, "Judgement Day"--sent to her publisher shortly before her death--is a brilliantly rewritten and transfigured version of "The Geranium." Taken together, these stories reveal a lively, penetrating talent that has given us some of the most powerful and disturbing fiction of the twentieth century. Also included is an introduction by O'Connor's longtime editor and friend, Robert Giroux.

About the Author:

Flannery O'Connor was born in Savannah, Georgia, in 1925. When she died at the age of thirty-nine, America lost one of its most gifted writers at the height of her powers. O'Connor wrote two novels, Wise Blood (1952) and The Violent Bear It Away (1960), and two story collections, A Good Man Is Hard to Find (1955) and Everything That Rises Must Converge (1964). Her Complete Stories, published posthumously in 1972, won the National Book Award that year, and in a 2009 online poll it was voted as the best book to have won the award in the contest's 60-year history. Her essays were published in Mystery and Manners (1969) and her letters in The Habit of Being (1979). In 1988 the Library of America published her Collected Works; she was the first postwar writer to be so honored. O'Connor was educated at the Georgia State College for Women, studied writing at the Iowa Writers' Workshop, and wrote much of Wise Blood at the Yaddo artists' colony in upstate New York. She lived most of her adult life on her family's ancestral farm, Andalusia, outside Milledgeville, Georgia.

Book Description Farrar Straus, 1987, 1987. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.8in. x 0.7in.Flannery OConnors collection is arranged in chronological order; throughout the stories her ideas age as she does. Her final story, entitled Judgement Day, is a revision of her first story, The Geranium. The difference between the two stories is apparent when OConnor hides the hope, faith, and love that many feel is missing from all the stories in between. OConnor, very much like the God she believed in, seems too ready to expose her characters to an amazing amount of pain and degredation. But if you read every sentence carefully, youll see that OConnor makes every sacrifice necessary. In an era now where authors tend to shock for the sake of it, OConnor stands out as a timeless reminder that as senseless and vicious lifes stories may sometimes seem, there is still the chance that behind everything there lays a deeper, knowable truth. That truth may come at some great expense but, OConnor seems to say, it is better to buy with your flesh something lasting and real, than to sell your soul for even a whole world of lies. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9780374515362
