Professor Henry T. Edmondson III has done a great service for readers of Flannery O’Connor in his book Return to Good and Evil: Flannery O’Connor’s Response to Nihilism. He has gone where so many O’Connor scholars would love to go: deep into Georgia College and State University’s special collection of her personal library and published and unpublished manuscripts, and has emerged with a wealth of knowledge about the philosophical and theological foundations of her work.
