Summary
"Examining the writings of Flannery O'Connor and Walker Percy against the background of the Southern Renaissance from which they emerged, Sykes explores how the writers shared a distinctly Christian notion of art that led them to see fiction as revelatory but adopted different theological emphases and rhetorical strategies"--Provided by publisher
