‘A Good Man is Hard to Find’ by Flannery O’Connor

The mother of all short stories. That’s all I have to say about this one.

If Kafka is my ideal literary papa then O’Connor is my chosen literary mama – what kind of fucked up offspring am I?

First published 1953. Widely collected, including in The Complete Stories, Faber 1971
