FLANNERY

ColeSmithey.comIf you got your Masters in English Lit at Columbia, but never read Flannery O'Connor, you got screwed.

This overlooked maverick of the Southern Gothic form gets a soup-to-nuts treatment, courtesy of PBS, in this indispensable documentary.

Flannery O'Connor expressed the grotesque reality of racism, religion, and misfits in Southern America (circa 1940 to the early '60s) with a style and grace that will sit you down.
