Am I the only creative writing person at Oberlin who doesn't like the stories and essays of Flannery O'Connor? Or live by them?

I mean, I can agree with a lot of what she says, but she kind of pisses me off, and I don't agree with her general philosophy of writing at all.

Her stories are funny, but they're the kind of self-indulging OHOHOHO WITTY BON MOT DEAR SIR humor I detest. And I don't even mean that in a classist way. She has anger for brains and a toothpick for wit.

To be fair, she'd probably say something equally cruel about me. And in a wittier way.
