Holy crap!

Or really, I ought to say that these stories are all about crappy holier-than-thou jerkwads all coming to gloriously nasty ends. And/or despair. As desert.

I expected something of this before I read it, of course. I've heard that Flannery O'Connor is one of the masters of the short fiction and nothing I've read is telling me any else. But what can we really expect?

TONS of racism. A mountain of some of the very worst humanity has to offer handed to us in our very own PoVs. This is fifties and sixties stuff, so prepare yourself. The most grace I see in them usually comes from the really delightful ends. A death here or there. Despair is good. And often these nasty people don't even know why.

We do. Or I'd like to think we, as readers, do.

Hell, this is why I'm such a big fan of Stephen King. We get to know these jerks and then we start cheering when the bad happens to them. Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Well worth the read.

I'd assume most Goodreads users are familiar with Flannery O'Connor's work but if you're not definitely check out this collection. O'Connor really takes no missteps, providing a host of characters who are blinded by their own delusions, typically pride, with disastrous consequences. "The Comforts of Home" is one story that brilliantly demonstrates the consequences of even small actions and the way that the violence quickly escalates doesn't feel melodramatic or forced, merely a swift judgment. This was a welcome return to one of America's best short story writers. ( )

Although O'Connor's stories are completely unlike Elizabeth Strout's Olive Kitteredge, I can apply the same sentiment to both: these incredibly depressing stories are somehow incredibly redemptive and uplifting.

O'Connor's redemption is a little more visceral, more overtly religious, and far less obscured by circumstance. In each story, the main character always reaches a nearly ecstatic epiphany, often at the point of death or tragedy. Nobody suffers from complicated emotional diseases in O'Connor's world; it's clear from the beginning of most stories whose heart needs rearranging, and violent means are usually required to get the job done. These stories aren't for namby-pambies. Kids die at the tip of O'Connor's pen, for the sake of someone's turning point.

Usually I don't care for stories that don't have a single likable character, but these are different. Reading Flannery O'Connor has been, for me, a little bit like cracking a code. She uses many of the same symbols (like vision and blindness), and there is a detectable pattern to her plots. But nothing is stale; each rendering of grace and awakening is fresh and moving.

My two favorites from this collection are "Greenleaf" and "The Lame Shall Enter First," but of course they're all good. ( )
