storySouth's new winter 2006 issue is out:

Women writers hold a special place in southern literature. From Gone with the Wind to The Color Purple, from To Kill a Mockingbird to the stories and novels of Zora Neale Hurston, Eudora Welty, Flannery O'Connor, and Carson McCullers, southern women have both defined the genre of southern literature and created its most enduring literary examples ... In this issue ... WA Bilen discusses why so many people misunderstand, and continually mistreat, our most iconoclastic southern writer in her penetrating essay Hiding Harper Lee.

I'm a big fan of Flannery O'Connor. Note to self: write something about Flannery O'Connor soon.

  1. I'm not sure how to go about getting approved here. i've been an O'Connor fan for a long time -- so want to get going in being about to contribute a note or two.
