About the Author:

Connie Ann Kirk teaches literature at Mansfield University in Pennsylvania.

From Booklist:

This welcome addition to the Critical Companion series is divided into four parts, each of which is quite detailed. The 17-page “Biography” includes information related to O’Connor’s upbringing and education and her determination to pursue a writing career in spite of her health problems. Part 2, “Works A–Z,” discusses 2 published novels, 27 short stories, and 8 essays. Each entry for fiction begins with a synopsis of the work, followed by a critical commentary, a description of the characters, and suggestions for further reading. Each also contains cross-references to letters, summaries of which can be found in a separate section of part 2. The extensive coverage of O’Connor’s correspondence, which is collected in The Habit of Being (1979), is the most unique feature of this volume.  Part 3, “Related People, Places, and Topics,” contains entries for writers who influenced O’Connor, such as Joseph Conrad and Ernest Hemingway; places, like Atlanta, Georgia, that played an important part in O’Connor’s life; and other aspects of her life and career. The appendixes in part 4 provide a chronology of her life and works from 1925 until 1964 and a detailed bibliography of her works. This series addition would be an asset to any high-school, college, or public library supporting study of the writer. --Carol Sue Harless
