"A visually pleasing, compact book that is easy for fans of O’Connor to tote around as they explore the places associated with the great writer’s life in Georgia."
—Flannery O'Connor Review
Flannery O’Connor spent most of her life in Georgia. Most of O’Connor’s fiction is also set in the state, in locales rich in symbolism and the ambience of southern rural and small-town life. Filled with contemporary and historical photos, this guide introduces O’Connor’s readers to the places where the great writer lived and worked—places whose features and details sometimes found their way into her fiction.
The guide describes such places as O’Connor’s childhood home in Savannah; the Governor’s Mansion, Cline House, and Central State Hospital in Milledgeville; and the family farm, Andalusia. Numerous facts about O’Connor and the people closest to her are woven into the site descriptions, as are critical observations about her Catholicism, her acute sense of character and place, and her fierce sense of humor.
All author royalties from sales of the guide will be donated to the Flannery O’Connor-Andalusia Foundation.
