Flannery O'Connor is one of the great American short story writers whose subjects are the duality of the Deep South and her Catholic faith. O'Connor once referred to A Good Man is Hard to Find as 'nine stories about original sin'. Combining a deft comic sensibility with the grotesque and tragic, they are stories in which characters lead lives of brutal poverty and fierce cruelty; where ordinary events can tip over into misfortune, violence and despair.
