About the Author

Richard Giannone is Professor Emeritus at Fordham University. He is the author of four books, including Flannery O'Connor: Hermit Novelist.


"Encountering Richard Giannone's writing through his academic studies of Willa Cather and Flannery O'Connor, I was impressed by his skill, sensitivity, and thoughtfulness. Even so, I was unprepared for the power of this book, this very personal memoir. The vulnerability and rawness of emotion revealed here were unexpected... A brave, haunting work." A. J. MOJTABAI, author of Blessed Assurance
