The complete stories by Flannery O'Connor( Book )
7 editions published between 1974 and 1995 in English and held by 51 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

Jack Kerouac, cult writer of the Beat generation, remains an American icon. This documentary focuses on the creative pinnacle of his life-63 days spent as a fire warden on Desolation Peak in Washington State. Examining the time through photos and the commentary of those who knew him, the program illuminates Kerouac's previous work, while prefiguring his later spiral into alcoholism. This is a moving film essay on the unfulfilled ambitions of one of America's great avant-garde literary figures
