And never mind the summary of "A Good Man Is Hard to Find"

“Regina is getting very literary. 'Who is this Kafka?’ she says. ‘People ask me.’ A German Jew, I says, I think. He wrote a book about a man that turns into a roach. ‘Well, I can’t tell people that,’ she says.”

-- Flannery O'Connor, in a letter to her friend, describing her mother Regina (quoted in Blake Bailey's review of Brad Gooch's O'Connor biography).
