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.
