The 4th interview has let me down. The man never met Flannery- he was a penpal! So, no trips to the farm and no bird stories. He does, however include a quote from a lecture she gave.
Question- Were you influenced by William Faulkner?
Answer- "Oh, no I was not influenced by him at all. Nobody wants his horse and wagon stalled on the track when the Dixie Limited comes along."
