Wise Blood by Flannery O'Connor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Hazel "Haze" Motes, a 22-year-old, has just returned from the war and becomes a preacher of the Church of Truth Without Christ, a church of his own creation that he uses to spread words against God, judgement, sin or evil.
This is a unique work of "low comedy and high seriousness", where a feeling of lack of purpose mixes with a sense of mysterious predestination to give this novel the right setting to discuss religion and humanity.
