Return to Good and Evil: Flannery O’Connor’s Response to Nihilism is a superb guide to the works of Flannery O’Connor; and like O’Connor’s stories themselves, it is captivating, provocative, and unsettling. Edmondson organizes O’Connor’s thought around her principal concern, that with the nihilistic claim that ‘God is dead’ the traditional signposts of good and evil have been lost.
