About this stamp:
Flannery O’Connor saw her talent and desire for writing as a God-given gift. She felt it was her divine calling, and answered it through literary works filled with imagery of original sin and questions of ethics and morality. Fiction was her religious pulpit.

Ironically, O’Connor did not write for her Catholic peers so much as for the Southern traditional Protestants whom she portrayed in her stories. Many believed her writing to be a satirical attack on the devoutly religious, but it was the opposite. O’Connor admired fundamentalists’ unwavering beliefs, though different from her own. Their convictions set them apart from Catholics and Protestant liberals.

O’Connor spent her last years at the family home in Georgia. She continued to write, but remarked “there won’t be any biographies of me because… lives spent between the house and the chicken yard do not make exciting copy.” Regarded as one of the greatest short story writers of the 20th century, she never knew how popular her writing would become.
