A Good Man is Hard to Find : Faber Stories, Paperback / softback Book

A Good Man is Hard to Find : Faber Stories Paperback / softback

Part of the Faber Stories series

Paperback / softback

Description

Faber Stories, a landmark series of individual volumes, presents masters of the short story form at work in a range of genres and styles.

A family sets out on a road trip in the American South.

The grandmother suggests they change course in order to avoid "The Misfit", an escaped convict who's reportedly heading towards Florida.

But when their car turns over in a ditch, who should they flag down for help but the very man whose picture they recognise from the paper . . . Flannery O'Connor's famous fifties story evokes heat and dust, family and feuding, God and grace - and is utterly uncompromising in its brutality. Bringing together past, present and future in our ninetieth year, Faber Stories is a celebratory compendium of collectable work.
