Reading The Prayer Journal Of The Young Flannery O'Connor
"The addressee here is God, but already O'Connor is rehearsing her role as speaker, anticipating how she will address a mortal audience. Learning to avoid cliché and speak authentically is a predicament of both prayer and literature, and solving the problem in her prayer life allowed O'Connor to solve the same problem in her fiction."
