"Had Thomas Wolfe lived he would have become the greatest of all American novelists." (The New YorK Times Review of Books)
Posted August 19, 2012
"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but the collection didn't seem out-of-date to me when I read it for the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.
