Thomas Wolfe's first novel, Look Homeward, Angel, was published in 1929. Wolfe was born in Asheville, North Carolina. Buck and I spent seven summers (and much of the time in-between) there between 1997 and 2004. The photo above was taken from our front porch. The photo below was taken from our back deck. Easy to see how a writer could get inspired at this altitude. We miss it.
I have just begun reading Look Hormeward, Angel. The regard or disregard with which it has been held has varied through the years since it was published. Have you read it? What do you think?
