A Good Man Is Hard To To Find.

“She would've been a good woman," said The Misfit, "if it had been somebody there to shoot her every minute of her life": First Edition of Flannery O'Connor's A Good Man Is Hard To To Find

A Good Man Is Hard To To Find.

O'CONNOR, Flannery.

$975.00

Item Number: 99871

New York : Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1955.

Review copy first edition, first state book with “tyring” on page 125; first-issue dust jacket with reviews for Wise Blood on rear panel of O’Connor’s classic work. Octavo, original boards. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with the review slip attached to the front free endpaper.

These ten stories—ranked by many readers as some of O’Connor’s strongest work and consistently lauded as masterfully crafted classics of modern American short fiction—take place in a rural South “that somehow hovers outside of time, where both the New Deal and the New Testament feel like recent history. It’s soaked in violence and humor, in sin and in God… a land haunted by Christ… [Many people] are in turn haunted by O’Connor. Her doctrinally strict, mordantly funny stories and novels are as close to perfect as writing gets” (New York Times).
