Summary
"With Jennifer Prince's biography of Thomas Wolfe, the North Carolina Office of Archives and History inaugurates a new series, 'True Tales for Young Readers.' In his short life of 38 years, the Asheville native took the literary world by storm. His 'Look Homeward, Angel' remains a favorite of readers three generations later. A genius, a giant figuratively and literally, the mountain writer angered many in Asheville with his depictions. But late in life, he did go home again, sitting with his mother on the steps of the boarding house and renewing old acquaintances. The book will introduce Wolfe to new readers, young and old." -- Provided by publisher.
