The complete stories by Flannery O'Connor( Book )

8 editions published between 1974 and 2008 in English and held by 72 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
