About This Item

The First UK printing published by Heinemann, London in 1930. The BOOK is in near Fine condition. A little pushing at the spine ends and some dustiness to the upper text-block. The gilt tilting to the spine remains very bright. Light offsetting to the end papers. Free from inscriptions, erasures and bookplates. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. Some light age related markings with some darkening to the spine and folds. The period wrapper design looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. The very scarce author's first novel. Collectible. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

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.
