Reader Beware!

Flannery's stories are often violent and shocking - though they're deeply spiritual and serious.  The violence is meant to wake reader up and get his or her attention - and it certainly works! 

Note as well that Flannery has her characters speak the way people in the South spoke in the mid 20th Century, meaning there is frequent us of the "N word".

Note that I will be quoting from Flannery's prose in my video lectures and written essays.
