Wolfe, Thomas: You Can't Go Home Again. v1. 24 June 07
Another wonderful and important American Novel, by Thomas Wolfe.
Here’s the story, quoted from four sources:
“George Webber has written a successful novel about his family and hometown. When he returns to that town he is shaken by the force of the outrage and hatred that greets him. Family and friends feel naked and exposed by the truths they have seen in his book, and their fury drives him from his home. He begins a search for his own identity that takes him to New York and a hectic social whirl; to Paris with an uninhibited group of expatriates; to Berlin, lying cold and sinister under Hitler's shadow. At last Webber returns to America and rediscovers it with love, sorrow, and hope.
“’If there stills lingers and doubt as to Wolfe's right to a place among the immortals of American letters, this work should dispel it.’
“’Wolfe wrote as one inspired. No one of his generation had his command of language, his passion, his energy.’
"’You Can't Go Home Again will stand apart from everything else that he wrote because this is the book of a man who had come to terms with himself, who has something profoundly important to say.’"
I hope you enjoy it.
P.S.: I’m still in Arkansas for a late Father’s Day. I’ll be back in Cincinnati Friday and will work on more titles for our Reader.
