The Violent Bear It AwayAudiobook CD - 2010
"First published in 1960, The Violent Bear It Away is now a landmark in American literature. It is a dark and absorbing example of the gothic sensibility and bracing satirical voice that are united in Flannery O'Connor's work. In it, orphaned Francis Marion Tarwater and his cousin, Rayber, defy the prophecy of their dead uncle - that Tarwater will become a prophet and will baptize Rayber's young son, Bishop. A series of struggles ensue, as Tarwater fights an internal battle against his innate faith and the voices calling nim to be a prophet, while Rayber tries to draw Tarwater into a more 'reasonable' modern world. Both wrestle with the legacy of their dead relatives and lay claim to Bishop's soul"--Container.
