Flannery O'Connor

Here's a nice essay on the hyper-brilliant Flannery O'Connor. It was my privilege and blessing, in the 1980s, to be introduced to and read most of O'Connor's works (thank you W.P. & S.B.). In O'Connor we see the supreme value of the fictive imagination in conveying things that the steel nets of "literal" language cannot express.
