Good Things Out of Nazareth

The Uncollected Letters of Flannery O'Connor and Friends
  • By Flannery O''Connor
  • Edited by Benjamin B. Alexander
Product Description
A literary treasure from National Book Award-winning author Flannery O'Connor (1925-1964) and her circle of extraordinary friends. This compilation of more than 100 unpublished letters from the vault of the Flannery O'Connor estate offers insight into faith, religion, sex, culture, and the literary world of mid-20th-century America. A story of friendship told in letters, this book features never before seen letters from such contemporaries as Walker Percy and Caroline Gordon.


Flannery O'Connor is a star of 20th-century American literature. Those familiar with her work know that her strong faith and struggle with Protestantism and Catholicism in the Deep South informed all that she wrote and did. This book is a collection of many of her unpublished letters, along with those of such literary stars as Walker Percy (author of The Moviegoer), Robert Giroux, Caroline Gordon, and movie critic Stanley Kauffmann. Themes of creativity, faith, work, and writing emerge, forming a riveting literary portrait of these friends, artists, and thinkers. Here we find their joys and loves, as well as their trials and tribulations as they struggle with doubt and illness while championing their Christian beliefs and fighting racism in the world of Jim Crow.
