Into the woozy world of “Wise Blood”


“Wise Blood,” the 1952 debut novel from the great Southern writer Flannery O’Connor, takes place in Taulkinham, a fictional small town situated somewhere in Tennessee.

Multi-media artist Chris Larson had some memories of the real Tennessee to draw on as he constructed sets for a new opera adapted from “Wise Blood” premiering in June at The Soap Factory. Those memories include the St. Paul native’s first trip to rural Tennessee, at age 15, with a youth group.
