Shortly after she began her writing career she was diagnosed with lupus. Despite her illness, OConnor authored more than two dozen short stories and two novels. Her highly regionalized Southern Gothic stories often involve grotesque characters.Literature critic and theologian Timothy J.

Basselin consults OConnors life and work to illustrate the profound connections existing between the theme of the grotesque and Christian theology. OConnors own disability, Basselin argues, inspired a theology that leads readers toward greater recognition of Gods activity in a sinfully grotesque world. By combining disability studies, literary critique, and theological reflection, Basselin discovers a new vision for approaching the disabled, the grotesque, and the other in society.

Flannery OConnor reignites OConnors own critiques of the modern affinity for perfection, self-sufficiency, and a clear separation between good and bad.
