'Do you have any books the faculty doesn't particularly recommend?'

You might know and love Flannery O'Connor as the legendary author of short fiction.
(She's this humble correspondent's favorite short story writer -- mainly because could take the mundane motions of southern life and skew them into something dark and twisted.)
But did you know that O'Connor also drew weird, counter-culture cartoons?
Apparently, before she forever our consciousness with "A Good Man is Hard to Find," O'Connor was seriously pursuing a career as a cartoonist. You can find the same skewed vision of the world in her drawings as you can in her fiction.
The book, "Flannery O'Connor: The Cartoons," is due out Dec. 11 and is available on Amazon here. Check out The Guardian's story here. scarred
