    Signed Card from Flannery O'Connor

    Flannery O'Connor. Christmas greeting card from Flannery O'Connor, Signed. [undated, circa 1960].

    Two sides, decorated with red and gold printed Christmas ornaments, signed by O'Connor: "I appreciated those kind words in the Commonweal - an excellent selection of adjectives, said I to myself. Did you see the editorial in America about Rabbit Run? Nauseaous. [sic] I hope your various projects are going well and I wish you a Merry Christmas. Flannery OC."

    A unique piece capturing the gentle and humorous spirit of this great author of Wise Blood, A Good Man is Hard to Find, and The Violent Bear It Away - a writer who had a deep impact on the literature of the South, despite a debilitating handicap and a tragically short life.
