From the Back Cover:

This timeless collection of nine stories, each with its climactic moment of human weakness, is set at that crossroads. At a roadside, in a stairwell, by a reddish river, O'Connor's flawed and vividly human characters grope toward mysteries they can barely comprehend.

About the Author:

Flannery O'Connor (1925-1964) was born in Savannah, Georgia. She earned her MFA at the University of Iowa, but lived most of her life in the South, where she became an anomaly among post–World War II authors--a Roman Catholic woman whose stated purpose was to reveal the mystery of God's grace in everyday life. Her work--novels, short stories, letters, and criticism--received a number of awards, including the National Book Award.
