Wise Blood by Flannery O'Connor
Hazel Motes, who returns from the army to the evangelical
south, is a religious fanatic driven by the need to escape his own fanaticism.
Motes and his companions are grotesque but familiar, brutish but funny.
O'Connors' startling use of language and the intense originality of her
Gothic imagination make this a classic of the American South.
