Everything That Rises Must Converge: Stories by Flannery OConnor

Flannery OConnor was working on Everything That Rises Must Converge at the time of her death. This collection is an exquisite legacy from a genius of the American short story, in which she scrutinizes territory familiar to her readers: race, faith, and morality. The stories encompass the comic and the tragic, the beautiful and the grotesque; each carries her highly individual stamp and could have been written by no one else.

Everything That Rises Must Converge: Stories

Take one tumultuous mother-son relationship. Add in a heaping cup of the Civil Rights Movement. Mix it all up with a spoonful of molasses-thick tension, and you get … a shocking situation involving a bus, a penny, and a very, very large purse. Born in Georgia, O'Connor had a brief but impressive life writing stories, novels, essays, and letters—not to mention illustrating cartoons. She died in when she was just 39 of lupus, the same disease that killed her father. Although she never considered herself liberal or political, she wrote during a time of extreme social change.

Chestny is a bigot who feels that blacks should rise, "but on their own side of the fence. It is Julian who recognizes that the black woman who hits Mrs. Chestny with her purse represents "the whole colored race which will no longer take your condescending pennies.
