This now classic book revealed Flannery O'Connor as one of the most original and provocative writers to emerge from the South. Wise Blood, Flannery O’Connor’s astonishing and haunting first novel, is a classic of twentieth-century literature. Her apocalyptic vision of life is expressed through grotesque, often comic situations in which the principal character faces a problem of salvation: the grandmother, in the title story, confronting the murderous Misfit; a neglected four-year-old boy looking for the Kingdom of Christ in the fast-flowing waters of the river; General Sash, about to meet the final enemy.

This debut collection was one of the first two winners of the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction.
