Thanks for joining me! If you’re wondering about this blog’s title, it is my homage to Flannery O’Connor, one of my favorite authors. Now, let me introduce myself and Beyond Eastrod.
I retired from a 25-year career in the U.S. Navy in 1994 (LDO/JAGC), and I retired from nearly 20 years of teaching university courses in English composition and literature a few years ago.
Now, as I finally have the time to do so, this blog gives me an opportunity to discuss my passions: literature and history.
And every now and then, in order to give this blog some variety, I’ll have some fiction and nonfiction book reviews to share with you.
So, stay please tuned for future postings, and please join the conversations.
