Reviews

  • Look Homeward, Angel is one of the most important novels of my life ... It's a wonderful story for any young person burning with literary ambition, but it also speaks to the longings of our whole lives; I'm still moved by Wolfe's ability to convey the human appetite for understanding and experience

    Elizabeth Kostova, author of 'The Historian'
  • In 1949, when I was sixteen, I stumbled on Thomas Wolfe, who died at thirty-eight in 1938, and who made numerous adolescents aside from me devotees of literature for life

    Philip Roth
  • Language as rich and ambitious and intensely American as any of our novelists has ever accomplished

    Charles Frazier, author of 'Cold Mountain'
  • He had that flair for the extravagant and fantastic which has been an American characteristic from Irving and Poe to Dashiell Hammett

    F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • The product of an immense exuberance, organic in its form, kinetic, and drenched with the love of life ... I rejoice over Mr. Wolfe

    Richard Aldington
