Abstract

Catholic Minds of the South: A New Concert by Bryan Giemza Flannery O’Connor’s Sacramental Art. By Susan Srigley. Notre Dame, IN: U of Notre Dame P, 2004. xii + 195 pages. $42.00 cloth, $20.00 paper. Peculiar Crossroads: Flannery O’Connor, Walker Percy, and Catholic Vision in Postwar Southern Fiction. By Farrell O’Gorman. Baton Rouge: Louisiana State UP, 2004. ix + 259 pages. $44.95 cloth. It’s no secret that the “three R’s” defi ning the South’s sense of diff erence — race, rurality, and religion — have largely given way to mo- dernity, at least on the surface. Race relations have improved to the ex- tent that the region now benefi ts from net in-migration of blacks, and the majority of southerners live in urban centers in what has become the most industrialized region of the country. A recent A.P. headline served up a kind of clichéd eulogy in suggesting that the South’s identity is “gone like the wind.” The article reports that Martha Stewart has designs to build a simulacrum of a New England neighborhood in Cary, North Carolina — reason enough, perhaps, to wear black — but it doesn’t note that Faulkner archly observed the same sort of thing
