Reseña del editor:

This is the first complete collection of Flannery O'Connor's stories. This volume, which includes all the stories from A Good Man Is Hard to Find and Everything That Rises Must Converge, also contains several stories never before published in book form. Flannery O'Connor was a unique writer whose work embodies not only the tensions and contradictions of the American South but many of the obsessions and issues at the heart of modernity, and some of her best work is to be found in her stories.

Biografía del autor:

Flannery O'Connor (1925-1964) was born in Savannah, Georgia, the only child of Catholic parents. In 1945 she enrolled at the Georgia State College for Women. After earning her degree she continued her studies on the University of Iowa's writing program, and her first published story, 'The Geranium', was written while she was still a student. Her writing is best known for its explorations of religious themes and southern racial issues, and for combining the comic with the tragic. After university, she moved to New York where she continued to write. In 1952 she learned that she was dying of lupus, a disease which had afflicted her father. For the rest of her life, she and her mother lived on the family dairy farm, Andalusia, outside Millidgeville, Georgia. For pleasure she raised peacocks, pheasants, swans, geese, chickens and Muscovy ducks. She was a good amateur painter. Her Complete Stories was awarded the Best of the National Book Awards by America's National Book Foundation in 2009.
