Autographed Collectible: Flannery O'Connor Review 2022
(Watermark seen on Flannery O’Connor Review 2022 in image does not appear on actual. Shipping and handling fees are included in cost of item.)
Flannery O’Connor Review 2022 showcases cover art by Aberjhani titled “Sermon in the Valley of Broken Angels” and a full section of pages––titled “When Hunger and Passion Collide and Other Works”––of additional original images. The special section also includes the previously unpublished poem, “History and Prophets’ Prerogatives” (now also included in These Black and Blue Red Zone Days).
Aberjhani’s work within the journal represents part of a multi-discipline trilogy exploring different aspects of O’Connor’s literary canon, which is taught in educational institutions around the world. In addition to “When Hunger and Passion Collide and Other Works,” the author-artist’s examinations of O’Connor’s legacy and continuing influence include: the memoir/essay collection Greeting Flannery O’Connor at the Back Door of Mind, and the art series titled Flannery O’Connor and Converging Grace.
As indicated on the cover of the Review, this volume represents the 20th year anniversary of the publication of the scholarly journal, and, the 50th anniversary of the Flannery O’Connor Bulletin. Equally notable is the fact that Aberjhani is one of very few African-Americans native to Savannah (as O’Connor, white, was herself) to have published work addressing controversial facets of O’Connor’s writings.
