The Hills Beyondby Thomas Wolfe
Wolfe stands among our
When Thomas Wolfe died in 1938, he left behind reams of unpublished manuscripts.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."
