"She would have been a good woman... if it had been somebody there to shoot her every minute of her life"

Oh my goodness! This is the greatest thing of ALL TIME! And y'all know how I feel about grand sweeping statements! But seriously this time, I really, really, really mean it! It's a recording of Flannery O'Connor reading her masterpiece A Good Man is Hard to Find in 1959 at Vanderbilt University, in all the glory of her Georgian accent and all the humour and all the tragedy and all the horror. I think I'm going to spend the day reading her stories. Seriously, how amazing is she?
