Product description


Gooch is a perceptive guide to O'Connor's work and life, which until now have remained hidden behind the fence of her mother's 550-acre farm, where O'Connor lived as a 'hermit novelist (from the age of 26')

- TELEGRAPH 'Skilful in marshalling the often humdrum details of O'Connor's life into a readable narrative, Gooch has produced as good a biography as, perhaps, we're likely to get (- SUNDAY TIMES 'A thoroughly researched record of O'Connor's life')


Book Description

The first major biography of one of the greatest writers of the South, whose books will 'live on and on in American literature' (Elizabeth Bishop).
