Sixteen of the biggest books of the 1950s

At B&N Reads Melissa Albert tagged sixteen of the most indispensable books of the 1950s, including:
A Good Man Is Hard to Find, by Flannery O’Connor

O’Connor’s stories, like life, are “nasty, brutish and short,” populated with tricksters, ciphers, and benighted people born into small destinies they’re unable to escape. Her stories are also darkly funny and addictively readable, each a window onto the small tragedies and even smaller minds of farm folk, drifters, and opportunists in the heartland.
Read about another entry on the list.

A Good Man Is Hard to Find is among Tina Jordan's top ten books.
