The complete stories by Flannery O'Connor( Book )

122 editions published between 1971 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 4,292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Page 4 of cover

"In this varied collection of commemorative essays, fiction, and poetry, some of today's most important writers pay tribute to the genius of Flannery O'Connor. The seventy-fifth anniversary of O'Connor's birth is the occasion for tributes from both those who called O'Connor a friend and those who have learned from her as students through the timelessness of her written word. The diversity and avidity of those who revere O'Connor as an artist is testimony to the genius of a woman whose continuing influence extends well beyond the insularity of her world and brevity of her life."--Jacket
