Abstract:

O'Connor responds to a librarian who rescued "Wise Blood" from a "nice old lady with the dead forebrain." She comments that most ladies in Milledgeville, Ga., who bought the book want their money back and that she tries not to read reviews as even the more favorable miss the point.

O'Connor adds that the book is "very Christian, after all" and notes that in her "estimation corrupting books are those which don't treat sin as sin, but as sickness or some such diluted notion thereof."

She concludes that she isn't strong enough to write a political book, though "Georgia and Tennessee are both full of ripe political material" and quotes an ungrammatical and racist remark by Eugene Tallmadge, noting that the "dialogue, anyway, writes itself."
