"An artist is a creature visited by demons. He doesn't know why they choose him and he's usually too busy to wonder why." -- William Faulkner
My book club came to the conclusion last night that Flannery O'Connor is a better short story writer than novelist. Only two of us made it through to the end of Wise Blood, which is rather sad and a little pathetic, I'll admit. Faulkner is hard for me too. I still wonder whether you have to be born in the USA to appreciate him fully. I have American friends who worship the man. Readers, please do weigh in.
