 Our Description

A superb novel from one of the greatest Catholic fiction writers of the 20th century.

Wise Blood, Flannery O’Connor’s astonishing and haunting first novel, is a classic of twentieth-century literature. Focused on the story of Hazel Motes, a twenty-two-year-old caught in an unending struggle against his innate, desperate fate, this tale of redemption, retribution, false prophets, blindness, blindings, and wisdoms gives us one of the most riveting characters in twentieth-century American fiction.

About the author: Flannery O'Connor (1925–64) was born into an Irish Catholic family in Savannah, Georgia and is considered to be one of the giants of the Southern literary tradition. She wrote two novels and thirty-two short stories, most of them infused with Catholic themes, as well as a number of reviews and essays, virtually all of which remain in print in book form. She died tragically at the age of 39 from a painful and crippling neurological disease.
