After Oconnor: Stories from Contemporary Georgia
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungGeorgia has produced some of the major figures of modern literature, including Carson McCullers, Erskine Caldwell and, most notably, Flannery O'Connor. While such writers are firmly established in American literary history, all too few readers are aware of how the state's tradition of literary excellence persists in the present day.The thirty stories in "After O'Connor" were written during the past fifteen years by authors who were born in Georgia or spent a significant part of their lives and careers in this state. Embracing the social, cultural, and ethnic variety in today's Georgia, "After O'Connor" both advances and helps redefine the great southern storytelling tradition.
PortraitHugh Ruppersburg is Professor of English and Senior Associate Dean of Arts and Sciences at the University of Georgia. He is the author or editor of many books, including "After O'Connor" and "Georgia Voices," a three-volume anthology of Georgia's fiction, nonfiction, and poetry (Georgia).
