Flannery O'Connor was born in Savannah, Georgia, in 1925, and died in 1964, at the age of 39. Despite her short life, she transformed American fiction with her two novels and 32 short stories, which relied heavily on regional settings and grotesque characters to probe moral and religious issues. She is best known for her story "A Good Man Is Hard to Find," which appeared in a book of the same name. Posthumously compiled, the Complete Stories won the 1972 U.S. National Book Award for Fiction.
