This now classic book revealed Flannery O'Connor as one of the most original and provocative writers to emerge from the South. Her apocalyptic vision of life is expressed through grotesque, often comic situations in which the principal character faces a problem of salvation: the grandmother, in the title story, confronting the murderous Misfit; a neglected four-year-old boy looking for the Kingdom of Christ in the fast-flowing waters of the river; General Sash, about to meet the final enemy.

Stories include:

"A Good Man Is Hard to Find"

"The Life You Save May Be Your Own"

"A Stroke of Good Fortune"

"A Temple of the Holy Ghost"

"A Circle in the Fire"
