MEDIA REVIEWS

Flannery O'Connor is gone, but the legend of her work is burned on the hearts of writers everywhere. The pages in "After O'Connor" are powerful and do honor to the fierce vision that inspired them.--Harry Crews


[It] looks like the future of that great enterprise called 'Southern Literature' is assured--at least if the state of Georgia has anything to do with it.--Diane Roberts ""Atlanta Journal-Constitution" "


[A] groundbreaking new short story collection from The University of Georgia Press that both advances and helps redefine the great southern storytelling tradition.--Georgia Public Radio


If the short story is an American invention, I think that the final patent was registered in the South, and maybe in Georgia, where the University of Georgia Press has collected works by thirty authors who have ties to the Peach State. This is not just a 'Georgia' book, but a collection of diverse voices that makes an American book, a collection that students and teachers, writers and aspiring writers will want to read.--Martin Lammon "Fuller E. Callaway / Flannery O'Connor Chair and director of the Creative Writing Program, Georgia College & State University "


Although the authors in this anthology address most directly the manners--whether of Atlanta, Oulaba, or Gansu Province--the mystery still shimmers in the visible distance, and anyone tempted by fashionable notions that the author is dead, that chronological narrative is obsolete, or that meaning is arbitrary should sample the stories in this volume to be reminded that the real legacy of O'Connor is sheer excellence, and that it thrives.--"American Book Review"
