blog post of Oct. 22-23. There sure is a lot of buzz being generated by this journal that O'Connor kept when she was a graduate student at the University of Iowa, and it's not just on the web either. On Wednesday, I received the November issue of The Atlantic. Leafing through it, I came across a feature article by James Parker titled "The Passion of Flannery O'Connor." It's generous of the good folks at The Atlantic to make this article available on-line. Unlike some journals, The Atlantic has historically given O'Connor the credit she is due. For more stories by and about her in The Atlantic, go to theatlantic.com/flannery.
