Author Info
Robert Coles
Robert Coles was born in Boston, Massachusetts and has been associated with that city throughout most of his professional life, teaching and doing research at Harvard University Medical School. He received a B.A. from Harvard in 1950, and his M.D. from Columbia University. A psychiatrist by training, he studied under Erik Erikson, and was influenced by his mentor's theories on the developmental stages of children. Most of his work reflects his insights garnered through his daily contact with and observation of children at play and in clinical settings. It also shows a concern for children in society and for society as a whole. He won a Pulitzer Prize for his "Children of Crisis" series of books. A prolific writer, Coles has also authored books on the moral and spiritual lives of children and has an interest in documentary writing--having served as a guiding force to "DoubleTake" magazine. He has cited William Carlos Williams and James Agee as influences.
From the Publisher
Editors Note Succinct text from photographer Barbara McKenzie and a foreword by Robert Coles provide context for this moving collection of photographs of the middle Georgia Flannery O?Connor depicted in her fiction. Whether capturing highway signs proclaiming Christ or a restaurant five hundred yards up the road, the frenzied motions of persons seized by the Holy Spirit, or quiet folks, black and white, sitting on benches in town squares, these photographs portray strikingly and sympathetically the world O?Connor wrote about in her remarkable stories.
