  • I found Flannery O’Connor deeply disturbing. I had waited until my 40s to read her. Yes, she writes extremely well. But really really disturbing … like being trapped in a real-life horror movie, if that makes any sense.

      It was Flannery’s intention to disturb.

    Disturbed? Read “The Habit of Being,” you will see her as the “anchoress of common sense” and a woman of almost “severe humility.”

    Well written article on Bruce, beautiful in its charity.
