Coveri image of Flannery O'Connor's book A Good Man is Hard to Find and Other StoriesFirst published in 1955 when she was 30 years old, this debut book quickly established Miss O’Connor as a force to be reckoned with and a true virtuoso of the short story.

Whatever the reason, these stories are at times dark, savage, compassionate – but they are always humorous and engaging.
