Welcome, Jeff! I'm sure you'll receive some fine recommendations here. I can 
only recommend Linda Whitney Hobson's short primer "Understanding Walker 
Percy" published by University of South Carolina Press.

But I'm really writing to recommend two other volumes -- neither of them 
literary criticism, but sure to be of interest to you -- published by 
University of Mississippi Press: "Conversations with Walker Percy" and "More 
Conversations with Walker Percy." Both contain numerous interviews with the 
man himself about his work and its themes.
