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.
