Summary:
"This analysis of O'Connor's works lays to rest the author's own self-deprecating description of herself as a "hillbilly" Thomist. Instead we see in O'Connor's writing a highly sophisticated mind, an in-convenience to the critics who dismiss her as anti-intellectual."--Provided by publisher.
