The Complete Stories - Flannery O'Connor - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of the Complete Stories:

Several slightly scary short stories from the South.

My favorite Flannery O'Connor quote from the book:

"Justice was grim and she took satisfaction in it when she found it."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Have you ever taken a wrong turn?

Do you appreciate your children?

My review of The Complete Stories:

Harsh examples of how not to behave.

Poor Norton broke my heart.

There are several places where the ultimately bad "N" word was used.  The book may not be for the young or faint of heart.
