Summary
A twentieth-century classic, Thomas Wolfes magnificent novel is both the story of a young writer longing to make his mark upon the world and a sweeping portrait of America and Europe from the Great Depression through the years leading up to World War II. Driven by dreams of literary success, George Webber has left his provincial hometown to make his name as a writer in New York City. When his first novel is published, it brings him the fame he has sought, but it also brings the censure of his neighbors back home, who are outraged by his depiction of them. Unsettled by their reaction and unsure of himself and his future, Webber begins a search for a greater understanding of his artistic identity that takes him deep into New Yorks hectic social whirl; to London with an uninhibited group of expatriates; and to Berlin, lying cold and sinister under Hitlers shadow. He discovers a world plagued by political uncertainty and on the brink of transformation, yet he finds within himself the capacity to meet it with optimism and a renewed love for his birthplace. He is a changed man yet a hopeful one, awake to the knowledge that one can never fully go back home to your family, back home to your childhood&away from all the strife and conflict of the world&back home to the old forms and systems of things which once seemed everlasting but which are changing all the time. ---Amazon
