O'Connor was one of the great writers of the mid-century American South, bringing new subtlety to portraits of small-town and rural life. Narrator Marguerite Gavin captures that subtlety through tone and accent in this audiobook of O'Connor's first story collection. The offbeat characters are working out issues of God and good and evil. Gavin shares O'Connor's apparent affection for them all, no matter how peculiar, deluded, or downright murderous they are, with a strong understanding of the sounds of the South. The combination of narrator and author revitalizes an American literary icon for a new generation of listeners. The introduction (written by Lauren Groff) is long but interesting and useful to those who want to know more about this important American author.
