A Good Man Is Hard To Find

By O'Connor, Flannery




A Good Man Is Hard to Find and Other Stories is a collection of short stories by American author Flannery O'Connor. The Southern Gothic collection was first published in 1955 by Hartcourt, Brace and Company. The short stories explore O'Connor's grotesque view of life which is often realistic and ultimately hopeful. A Good Man is Hard to Find is her second published work and established O'Connor as a major voice in American literature. Short stories in the collection include "The River," "The Life You Save May Be Your Own," and "A Good Man Is Hard To Find" - its namesake.

First edition identification and notes

Women's Press Classic, 2001. Paperback. Good. A good paperback with signs of wear on cover as in image, underlining and notes in text. 251p. 19,812,5cm. 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.
