Find out why Flannery OConnor, an American novelist, is known as a master of the grotesque in Southern Gothic literature.--Flannery OConnor scribbled tales of outcasts, intruders and misfits staged in the world she knew best: the American South. She was a master of the grotesque, but her work pushed beyond the purely ridiculous and frightening to reveal the variety and nuance of human character. Iseult Gillespie explores how OConnors endlessly surprising fictional worlds continue to draw readers decades later.
