Look homeward, angel : a story of the buried life by Thomas Wolfe ( Book )
346 editions published between 1929 and 2011 in 20 languages and held by 4,800 libraries worldwide
An elaborate and moving coming-of-age story about Eugene Gant, a restless and energetic character whose passion to experience life takes him from his small, rural hometown in North Carolina to Harvard University and the city of Boston. The novel's pattern is artfully simple--a small town, a large family, high school and college--yet the characters are monumental in their graphic individuality and personality.
You can't go home again by Thomas Wolfe ( Book )
185 editions published between 1934 and 2011 in 12 languages and held by 3,838 libraries worldwide
This novel was published posthumously in 1940 after heavy editing by Edward Aswell. Like Wolfe's other works, it is largely autobiographical and provides a glimpse into life in the 1930s. As the sequel to 'The Web and the Rock' (1939), this book continues the story of the main character, George Webber. George has written a successful novel about his family and hometown. When he returns to that town he is shaken by the force of the outrage and hatred that greets him. Family and friends feel naked and exposed by the truths they have seen in his book, and their fury drives him from his home. He begins a search for his own identity that takes him to New York and a hectic social whirl; to Paris with an uninhibited group of expatriates; to Berlin, lying cold and sinister under Hitler's shadow. At last Webber returns to America and rediscovers it with love, sorrow, and hope.

The web and the rock by Thomas Wolfe ( Book )
123 editions published between 1937 and 2009 in 8 languages and held by 2,994 libraries worldwide
"The Web and the Root features the three initial sections of the The Web and the Rock, widely considered to be the book's strongest material. A prequel to You Can't Go Home Again, it is the story of George Webber's momentous journey from Libya Falls, North Carolina, to the Golden City of the North--offering vivid, sometimes cutting depictions of rural pleasures and small-town clannishness while exploring boundless urban possibility and the complex, violent undercurrents of the metropolis"--P.  of cover.
The hills beyond by Thomas Wolfe ( Book )
66 editions published between 1935 and 2000 in 6 languages and held by 2,081 libraries worldwide
"The unfinished novel from which this collection of sketches, stories, and novellas takes its title was Wolfe's final effort. It tells the story of the Joyner family, Goerge Webber's maternal ancestors, in pre - Civil War North Carolina and illustrates Wolfe's fine sense of family traits rooted in a traceable past. "Chickamauga" is the superb Civil War tale that Wolfe received from his great-uncle; "The Lost Boy" renders a second, more tender treatment of the death of young Grover Gant; and "The Return of the Prodigal" describes Eugene Gant's imagined and then actual revisit to Altamont when he is a famous author."--BOOK JACKET.

O lost : a story of the buried life by Thomas Wolfe ( Book )
5 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,101 libraries worldwide
"The editing of Thomas Wolfe's first novel, originally titled "O Lost," has been the subject of literary argument since its 1929 publication in abridged form as Look Homeward, Angel. This powerful coming-of-age novel tells the rich story of Eugene Gant, a young North Carolina man who longs to escape the confines of his small-town life and his tumultuous family. At the insistence of Maxwell Perkins, the legendary editor at Charles Scribner's Sons, Wolfe cut the typescript by 22 percent. Sixty-six thousand words were omitted for reasons of propriety and publishing economics, as well as to remove material deemed expendable by Perkins. Published for the first time on October 3, 2000 - the centenary of Wolfe's birth - O Lost presents the complete text of the novel's manuscript." "For seventy years Wolfe scholars have speculated about the merits of the unpublished complete work and about the editorial process - particularly the reputed collaboration of Perkins and Wolfe. In order to present this classic novel in its original form as Wolfe wrote it, Arlyn and Matthew J. Bruccoli have established the text from the carbon copy of the typescript and from Wolfe's pencil manuscript. In addition to restoring passages omitted from Look Homeward, Angel, the editors have corrected errors introduced by the typist and other mistakes in the original text and have explicated problematic readings. An introduction and appendices - including textual, bibliographical, and explanatory notes - reconstruct Wolfe's process of creation and place it in the context of the publishing process."--BOOK JACKET.
