"One must be grateful to Sarah Gordon—one of America's leading O'Connor scholars—for her A Literary Guide to Flannery O'Connor's Georgia. Her study is comprehensive, constituting an indepth exploration of the Georgia places that were central in O'Connor's life. The book provides an intimate view of O'Connor's world and a superb introduction for anyone unfamiliar with the author's work."--Georgia Review
