About This Item

First UK edition, first impression (William Heinemann Ltd, 1930). Originally published in the US the previous year. The author's first novel.

Original dark blue cloth with lettering to spine in gilt. A better than near fine copy with just a little off-setting to endpapers, contents lovely and clean otherwise.

The original dust jacket is similarly in near fine condition with some of the usual fading to the spine panel that the colour of the jacket makes it especially prone to.

A fantastic copy, not easily found in such good condition.

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.
