Flannery O'Connor is considered by many to be one of America's preeminent Catholic writers. Her story is one of those told in the People of God series which presents inspiring biographies of Christian people who have experienced the challenges and weaknesses we have all faced but who give us an example of how these problems may be handled. In her book, Flannery O'Connor Fiction Fired by Faith, author Angela Alaimo O'Donnell tells of a young woman from Georgia who set out to attain her goal of being a writer and who became one of the most successful fiction writers of the 20th century. Struck by a fatal disease she returned to Georgia and lived an isolated life far from the literary world she loved but where she developed a rich interior life through reading and correspondence and developed a deep faith in the face of her own mortality all of which is reflected in her writings. O'Donnell also explores the stories of O''Connor and looks at how writing these stories allowed her to express her own doubts, challenges and consolation in living the Catholic faith.
