Your thesis statement should focus on whatever point you are trying to make in your essay. If your intention is to discuss the irony in O'Connor's novel Wise Blood, then that's what you need to say in your thesis statement.

The thesis statement tells the reader what to expect in the rest of the essay. You might call it a condensation of the whole essay into one sentence. I've attached to this answer two articles that will be very helpful to one. The is the enotes definition and examples of thesis statements. The second gives suggestions on how to write a thesis statement. I'm sure you'll find some good advice!
