website. Besides providing a lot of useful information for folks planning a visit to the farm, this site is a veritable repository of all things O'Connor. Containing everything from a good bibliography to multimedia presentations and FAQs, our site has it all. Another online resource I heartily recommend is a blog called The Comforts of Home. Though I am reluctant to steer folks away from my blog, this one offers an excellent compendium of O'Connor material. After checking out these sites, I would encourage the budding Flanneryophile to read a good biography, such as Brad Gooch's, Flannery: A Life of Flannery O'Connor. Those of you who follow my blog know that I quote from this book extensively and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Another resource I draw from a lot is The Habit of Being. This collection of O'Connor's letters reveals much of her personality, spirituality, and dry, off-beat sense of humor. The body of secondary literature on O'Connor is vast and ever-expanding. Some of the more important of these books of literary criticism are listed on the Andalusia website. For anyone wishing to peruse current O'Connor scholarship, I suggest checking out recent issues of the Flannery O'Connor Review. This journal comes out once a year and presents a nice balance of essays and articles from all points of view. Copies of the Review are available in the Andalusia gift shop or by subscription. So there you have it, a substantial stockpile of resources to get you started in the wacky, witty world of Flannery O'Connor.
