flannery o'conner reads a good man is hard to find (1959)
much more at the indispenable open culture
We had lectures on Flannery O'Connor at Uni. Our American Lit. professor, a world leader in his field/marvellous old queen who'd hung out with William S.Burroughs and Grace Slick in the 60s may he rest in peace would read aloud from her stuff, (badly) approximating the accent. Now that's a 'Higher' Education.
ideally i would like to be able to slip effortlessly between af flannery southern accent and a celia johnson. electrocution lessons here we come...
