From Death to Morningby Thomas Wolfe
With his reputation again in full flower, Thomas Wolfe stands among our nation's greatest writers. William Faulkner admired his breathtakingly stylish prose, which also inspired Jack Keroac's experimental lyricism. From Death to Morning is the second collection of Thomas Wolfe's short stories that Books-On-Tape has recorded in recent months. Along with The Hills Beyond (B-O-T #4300), this extraordinary compilation is our effort to return a fine writer to his rightful position in America's literary pantheon.
The collection of fourteen stories includes "No Door," "Death the Proud Brother," "The Face of War," "Only the Dead Know Brooklyn," "The Four Lost Men," "Gulliver," "The Web of Earth," and five others.
"Had Thomas Wolfe lived he would have become the greatest of all American novelists." (The New YorK Times Review of Books)

"From Death to Morning" is one of my favorite short story collections, of any genre, by any author. Wolfe wrote during the 1930's, but the collection didn't seem out-of-date to me when I read it for the first time, in 1995. I read it again in 2012, and enjoyed the stories as much as I did before! I think that Thomas Wolfe's short fiction is much easier to read than his elaborate, lengthy novels. Even if you didn't like "Look Homeward, Angel", it is worth giving this collection a try. The mood is similar to William Faulkner, but more modern, and the story plots are as good as the beautiful prose.
