With insight and compassion, a team of narrators performs this collection of more than 100 unpublished letters by and about American literary icon Flannery O'Connor and her contemporaries. Novelists Walker Percy and Caroline Gordon (NONE SHALL LOOK BACK) and editor Robert Giroux, among others, fill out the portrait of the sometimes cantankerous O'Connor in knowing and empathetic tones. Narrators John Mayer, Arthur Morey, Dorothy Dillingham Blue, and Kimberly Farr represent the full cast of intellectuals and scholars of O'Connor's age, the 1950s and '60s, who helpfully supported and gently guided the writing and rewriting of this singular talent. The letters explore themes such as creativity, faith, suffering, and writing during a time of social struggle in America. O'Connor's takes on racial equality and religious freedom still ring true today. R.O. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
