"As becomes unmistakably clear as you read through this collection, Flannery O’Connor was not only a masterful teller of tales; she was also one of the most perceptive literary theorists of the twentieth century. She once famously defined herself as a “hillbilly Thomist,” and the aesthetics of St. Thomas Aquinas do indeed inform the way she thought about her own work. "

Great Edition of Wonderful Stories
(Canada) | May 16th, 2020
This is the first book I have purchased from the Word on Fire classics collection and I love it! It is such a beautiful edition and is very well bound, making it well worth the money (because it is quite pricey). The collection is so thoughtfully put together by Bishop Barron. It is great the connections found between various works of O'Connor's that are grouped in the different parts of the book. As a newcomer to the works of Flannery O'Connor, I have found this collection really great to start off with. I also really love shopping on Sunrise Marian to support Canadian distributors of amazing Catholic products!
