Discussion Notes: Good Country People
This week’s story: Good Country People by Flannery O’Connor
Next week’s story: Enid & Floyd & the Moon by Jeanne Shoemaker
Rated: Explicit Language
“Good Country People” centers around a mother and daughter, and their neighbors who are also their farm staff. The characters fall into categories with two very opposing world views. Those world views are tested by a traveling Bible salesman who presents two facades that challenge their sense of order and self.
Anais loved the near-perfect short story and tries her best to raise Gerald and Andy’s enthusiasm. Andy is tickled by the word play in the characters names, and Gerald wishes there was more meat in the plot, despite the fact he enjoyed the writing quite a bit.
