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.
Features include: More than fifty full-color contemporary
photographs and numerous black-and-white historical imagesAn
