Vacation Reading, Part 1

I mentioned last Thursday that I did a fair amount of reading on my vacation. This week, I'll share thoughts about some books I read.

I kept hearing and seeing references to Flannery O'Connor in the things I was reading and listening. So I got myself a copy of her collected works. Flannery O'Connor is a Christian Catholic writer who wrote lots of dark short stories. Her writing always points to the depravity of humankind in all its manifestations. I read "Wise Blood" and "A Good Man is Hard to Find." Funny, sad, witty, and thought-provoking . . . . all at the same time. This lady knew human nature!

Has anybody read any Flannery O'Connor?
