Only for the Flannery O'Connor fan. The fiction is far superior--the same goes for The Habit of Being. There's also something creepy about reading this: she never meant anyone to read these and going through them has the definite feel of rummaging around in someone's dresser drawers. Of course, there are many moments where a reader hears O'Connor's voice, but this voice was meant for ears other than mine. ( )

Beautiful, thoughtful and vulnerable.. writings, musings, prayers of O'Connor.
Very short book, took me less than a day to read. Very inspiring. Only wish there had been more entries. ( )

I feel strange rating a person's prayer journal, as if I can pick apart a woman's heartfelt words to God. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this short book. It gives the reader a glimpse into O'Connor's heart and gives greater understanding of her goal as a Catholic writer. ( )

This small book contains a somewhat corrected transcription and a facsimile of a prayer journal kept by author Flannery O'Connor in 1946-1947. She kept it in one of those old Sterling notebooks with the marbled paper cover and lined pages. It contains the prayers of her heart. Some pages are missing, and in some cases at least, O'Connor herself tore them out. The book offers us a glimpse into O'Connor's spiritual life as she was embarking on her writing career. She desired to be a good writer and prayed for that. She seemed to be somewhat sporadic in her journaling as are most persons. She wrote daily for awhile and then was absent for periods of time. At other times she wrote some days but not others. The editor of the published volume did try to note where pages had been torn out. The journal itself even begins mid-sentence because of torn-out pages. In some instances, I wondered what led her to write that day's entry. She seems to be well-versed in philosophy. This small volume is important to those studying O'Connor's fiction works. We can only wonder about future works she might have created if her life had not been cut short by lupus at age thirty-nine.

A short book of which half is photocopies of O'Connor's journal. As a writer myself, and a person of deep faith in a Divine Being (whatever one wishes to call that Divinity), I was fascinated by her struggle to keep faith in God & herself, and by her constant pleas to God to grant her ambitions to be more than a mediocre writer (possibly because they echo my own prayers)

However, cynically, I wondered who tore out the missing pages - was it the publishers themselves(to keep the journal focused on he writing prayers) and were they really missing when the journal was found? I'm not a fan of living celebreties biographies and advice books - but O'Connor is no longer living, and her talent has stood the test of time. Thus, this journal could have been a great inspiration to unpublished authors. It is fascinating seeing her insecurities & ambition laid bare. I did, however, expect a prayer journal to cover other aspects of her life, and that was missing from this very short book. I did, however, like the photocopies of the actual journal and seeing her actual handwriting. ( )
