Flannery O'Connor at her best - the twisted short story. I had read a few of these in high school and they always stuck with me. Re-reading them some ten years later I'm struck at the timelessness desperation of the characters. O'Connor was a master at capturing the twists of human nature, and this is one of those collections that more people should read.

Excellent, entertaining, thoughtful short stories. The one, in particular that struck me as her most powerful is "The River," a disturbing story of a baptism seen in a different way.
