It is in relation to St. Thomas? teaching, then, that O?Connor becomes comfortable in her ?place, ? Andalusia, that small farm just outside the small town of Milledgeville in middle Georgia. With that as background, this detailed analysis of O?Connors works lays to rest the authors own self-deprecating description of herself as a ?hillbilly? Thomist. Instead we see in O?Connors writing a highly sophisticated mind, an inconvenience to the many critics who dismiss her as anti-intellectual. The book is published as a set of two volumes. Replacement volumes can be obtained individually under ISBN 0-7864-2626-8 (for Volume 1) and ISBN 0-7864-2627-6 (for Volume 2).
