Here is O'Connor's best: pitch-black, scathingly perceptive, vicious. Many of these deal with the problems of a flacid intellectualism unable or unwilling to accomplish any good and consumed by its own narcissism. The others deal with various sociopaths, zealots, and uncomprehending racists. Nothing can end well for any of them. And then, shortly after filing a last story called "Judgement Day", Flannery O'Connor died.
