There is something magical and impossible about O'Conner's short stories. They pulse, plunge and roll like one giant allegorical ocean. At one level her writing is beautiful and charged with a cold and lonely realism, but she pounds again and again with the brutality of her words until she absolutly devours and transforms whole continents of readers. One cannot read these stories and not be pulled away by the current of her imagination transfixed, transformed and thinkin' kinda funny.

What made the experience of listening to A Good Man Is Hard to Find and Other Stories the most enjoyable?
These are classic American stories, touching upon all the hot bottoms of our culture: race, class, gender and religion. These stories are both funny and frightening, sad and instructive. However, the narrator does not do them justice. These stories are read in a uniform, uninspired,rushed monotone. Still, not a total loss. The material is that good.
