Film Review: Dreams of a Life (2011)

•••
Whilst making the Dreams of a Life, Morely spent years collecting and piecing together testimonials recounted by Joyce's now guilt-ridden friends and ex-lovers. These stories describe her as being a drifter.

When I read that the United States Postal Service recently issued a Flannery O’Connor stamp (June 5th), I was reminded of my literary defeat. Since her death, aged thirty nine, in 1964, O’Connor’s fame has steadily risen. People like Joyce Carol Oates, Bruce Springsteen and Donna Tartt love her.
