Greeting Flannery O'Connor At The Back Door Of My Mind (autographed collectible)
Greeting Flannery O’Connor at the Back Door of My Mind is written in the style of memoir essays for which the author of Dreams of the Immortal City Savannah has become well known. The literary approach in this collection allows him to share with readers compelling stories in which he explores the impact of works by three authors often associated with his hometown of Savannah, Georgia (USA): James Alan McPherson, John Berendt, and Flannery O’Connor.
Moreover, the covered art, titled "Landscape for Poets Addicted to Love & Justice," is also by the author-artist.
In addition to documenting the influences of O'Connor, McPherson, and Berendt upon himself, Aberjhani examines the cultural biases which have prompted many Americans to protest the same on a variety of platforms. These have ranged from social media, classrooms, and Zoom meetings, to Congressional debates on critical race theory and marches on Washington D.C.
This first Special Edition (ISBN 978-1-71668-481-4) comprises only one third of the author-artist’s creative strategic approach to discussing O'Connor's work during a historical period which has seen cultural progressions considered unthinkable during O’Connor’s lifetime. The other two components of the approach include: works featured in Flannery O'Connor Review 2022; and, the Flannery O’Connor and Converging Grace art collection.
