    This collection of nine short stories by Flannery O'Connor was published posthumously in 1965. The flawed characters of each story are fully revealed in apocalyptic moments of conflict and violence that are presented with comic detachment.

    What did you love best about Everything That Rises Must Converge?

    Each short story is memorable. I have read nothing like them before.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I did not like any of the characters but I was made to feel for them just the same. I suppose old Tanner in Judgement Day will be most memorable, or Mary Fortune in A View from the Woods.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have tried to read O'Connor but just did not get it. These narrators brought the stories to life. Their interpretations are brilliant.


    Any additional comments?

    This is great writing but magnificent performances. I was never bored.
