Overview

When Thomas Wolfe died in 1938, he left behind reams of unpublished manuscripts. With careful handling by his editor, Max Perkins, that material became two of his best-known novels, The Web and the Rock and You Can't Go Home Again. What remained eventually formed a superb selection of Wolfe's finest short stories into The Hills Beyond.

Wolfe stands among our nation's greatest writers, a figure whose stylish prose was admired by William Faulkner and honored by Jack Kerouac. The collection includes: "The Lost Boy," "Chickamauga," "The Lion at Morning," "No Cure for It," "The Return of the Prodigal Son," "God's Lonely Man," and "The Hills Beyond."

Editorial Reviews
