400 short stories: story 301

story: “A Good Man is Hard to Find”

author: Flannery O’Connor

year: 1953

note: I read this story real slow today, drinking lemon ice tea. Maybe the slowest I ever read it, and in this slowness, it felt more violent than ever.

a line:  “Behind them the line of woods gaped like a dark open mouth.”

theme(s): Survival, murder, the South, grace
