Well, yes ...

... Is Flannery O'Connor a Catholic writer? (Hat tip, Dave Lull)

  1. Superb! A curtain-call for O'Connor. She would be embarrassed by all of the attention. Now, if only readers would understand that she is not a secular novelist; among all the Catholic novelists a person could list--Powers, Greene, and others--O'Connor, in my humble opinion, is the most challenging, the most profound, and the most Catholic. And that endorsement is coming from someone who is not a Catholic but is someone overwhelmed by O'Connor's fusion of fiction and the Christian notions of the Passion and Grace.
