For one of the first times, Flannery O'Connor gets to hang out with some contemporaries but not of the prose world, the art world. Spotted for sale in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Flannery O'Connor shares shelf space with painters like Amedeo Modigliani, Giorgio Morandi, and Georgia O'Keeffe (yes, yes, alphabetically). You'll enjoy her ideas and experimentation, they laid the groundwork for her future fiction and she joins the ranks of other writers who played around in the visual arts like E. E. Cummings and William Blake. Pick up a copy of her book of linocuts and cartoons, edited by Kelly Gerald, today to shelve along with some of YOUR favorite artists in your bookshelf.
