“For O’Connor devotees, the new collection is essential … The new collection’s editor, Benjamin B. Alexander …pulls a vast array of references, allusions, and personalities into conversation, and his ability to keep them all talking to each other is impressive. … Good Things Out of Nazareth provides a different kind of pleasure. … I open it at random to hear a familiar voice … I consider my psyche set straight and my spine stiffened.”
