Flannery O'Connor and Sexuality

300 letters between the great Catholic writer and a lesbian friend are set to be released tomorrow. Money quote:

"Enniss expects the letters to reveal an O'Connor who was surprisingly open-minded about sexuality, considering her strong Catholic faith."

Some excerpts have already been published and show O'Connor's humane and ready wit:

"You don't look anything like I expected you to as I always take people at their word and I was prepared for white hair, horn-rimmed spectacles, nose of eagle and shape of ginger-beer bottle. Seek the truth and pursue it: you ain't even passably ugly."
