If you don’t read Flannery O’Connor, you need to go fix that immediately. Fierce, Southern, funny, unafraid of truth, and the most interesting kind of Catholic, her writing has survived long past her untimely death in 1964 from lupus.
Now, courtesy of Better Magazine, we have the Flannery O’Connor Soundboard, where you can click to hear her say things like “Ghosts can be very fierce and instructive,” “They began to slap each other,” and “Looking for girls with wooden legs.” Fortunately, her speaking voice is just as Southern as you wished it would be.
