Hailed by critics as one of the more controversial of contemporary American authors, Flannery O Connor has been described as the most extreme Christian dualist since Dostoevsky. In this first full-length study of O Connor s work, Browning explores the implications of O Connor s situation as a Roman Catholic in the South in the 1950s.

From this point of departure Browning offers a detailed analysis of "Wise Blood," " A Good Man Is Hard to Find," " The Violent Bear It Away," " "and "Everything That Rises Must Converge. "Touching upon writings about intensely religious acts and dilemmas, this look at a Roman Catholic Southern writer will be of special interest to students of philosophy and religion."
