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

First editions can be identified by the presence of the words "First Edition" on the copyright page as well as a typographic error on page 125 which reads "tyring" instead of "trying."
