Inhaltsangabe

Flannery O'Connor's astonishing and haunting first novel is a classic of 20th-century literature. It is the story of Hazel Motes, a 22-year-old caught in an unending struggle against his innate, desperate faith. He falls under the spell of a "blind" street preacher named Asa Hawks and his degenerate 15-year-old daughter.

In an ironic, malicious gesture of his own non-faith, and to prove himself a greater cynic than Hawks, Hazel founds The Church of God Without Christ but is still thwarted in his efforts to lose God. He meets Enoch Emery, a young man with "wise blood," who leads him to a mummified holy child and whose crazy maneuvers are a manifestation of Hazel's existential struggles.

This tale of redemption, retribution, false prophets, blindness, and wisdom gives us one of the most riveting characters in American fiction.

Kritikerstimmen

"No other major American writer of our century has constructed a fictional world so energetically and forthrightly charged by religious investigation." (The New Yorker)

"There is in Flannery O'Connor a fierceness of literary gesture, an angriness of observation, a facility for catching, as an animal eye in the wilderness, cunningly and at one sharp glance, the shape and detail and animal intention of enemy and foe." (The New York Times Book Review)

    "Fantastic, scary book, brilliant reading"

    Easily one of the best readings I have heard so far. The rendering of the many voices with their Southern twang kept me spellbound for days.
    The novel itself is ... scary. Not like a Stephen King but like a Poe without ghosts. Really, this is a story of crucifixion and craziness. Christ stands in the center without making a personal appearance. Only Dostoyewsky has ever been this efficient in telling the story of original sin and redemption.
