A couple months ago I mentioned in this blog that the log-awaited book Flannery O'Connor: The Cartoons had just been published by Fantagraphics. What I didn't say was that this handsome book is now on sale at the Andalusia gift shop for the modest price of $22.99. A real bargain for a hard-bound book full of not only Flannery's cartoons, but also photographs from her time at Georgia State College for Women, and interpretive essays on the cartoons by Barry Moser and the book's editor, Kelly Gerald. According to Vanna Le of Forbes Magazine, "Flannery O'Connor: The Cartoons has just the right amount of charm you
would expect from a young and witty O'Connor. But it's more than just a book for
laughs -- it offers some insight into O'Connor's personal life as well as her
mockery towards the pretensions of her social environment." Call us today (478-454-4029) to order your copy.
