If you've already read everything ever written by Flannery O'Connor and crave more, take heart: This recently discovered diary of her long-form letters to God will make you especially thankful this season. A Prayer Journal offers insight into O'Connor's desire to balance her love for God with her far-greater love of writing, as she asks Him, "help me to love & bear with my work...If I have to sweat for it, dear God, let it be as in Your service."
