  • 12. Everything That Rises Must Converge: Stories

    by O'Connor, Flannery

     

    Seller Description: A Fine tight copy in a Fine, bright, unclipped dust jacket. Flannery O'Connor was working on Everything That Rises Must Converge at the time of her death. This collection is an exquisite legacy from a genius of the American short story, in which she scrutinizes territory familiar to her readers: race, faith, and morality. The stories encompass the comic and the tragic, the beautiful and the grotesque; each carries her highly individual stamp and could have been written by no one else. See More Details
