Last month marked the 50th anniversary of the death of American Southern Gothic writer Flannery O’Connor. Despite dying at a young age (39), she greatly contributed to the work in this genre, and is still read extensively today. Ms. O’Connor lived briefly in the New York City area before moving to Iowa to attend the prestigious Writer’s Workshop.
Five years ago the Leonard Lopate Show interviewed Brad Gooch, a biographer of Ms. O’Connor. It’s an intimate and funny look at the life of a mysterious yet influential woman.
Open Culture also has a recording of Flannery O’Connor reading one of her most popular short stories “A Good Man is Hard to Find.”
