About This Item

LONDON, ENGLAND: WILLIAM HEINEMANN, 1930. First Edition . Hardcover. VG. NO DUST JACKET, OWNER'S NAME TO FFEP. LIGHT SUNNING TO THE SPINE AREA.

Synopsis

Look Homeward, Angel: A Story of the Buried Life is a 1929 novel by Thomas Wolfe. It is Wolfe's first novel, and is considered a highly autobiographical American Bildungsroman. The character of Eugene Gant is generally believed to be a depiction of Wolfe himself. The novel covers the span of time from Gant's birth to the age of 19. The setting is the fictional town and state of Altamont, Catawba, which is considered to be a not-so-subtle mirror of his hometown, Asheville, North Carolina.
