Added DiffLines:

* TheComicallySerious: Hazel responds to nearly every confrontation by reciting the nihilistic credo of his church. Brad Dourif is especially good with this in the film version.

* EsotericHappyEnding: Few endings could be bleaker, as the world accounts it. From O'Connor's viewpoint, though, it's unclear whether even Hazel's most dogged efforts were enough to escape from that "ragged figure" that haunts him. The book suggests that [[spoiler:not only didn't he escape that figure's grace in the end, his death may have made him a weird conduit of grace for others, including the landlady]].

Hazel Motes is the grandson of a preacher. After serving in TheKoreanWar, where he didn't so much lose his faith as realize that he never wanted that faith in the first place, he returns to Tennessee. He finds living without Christ to be more complicated than he expected, and that it's harder to give up preaching than it was to renounce Jesus.
