Synopsis

Writing Home The Story of Author Thomas Wolfe by Laura Boffa

Thomas Wolfe remains one of America's most famous writers and figures. His experiences and relationships with his family and his hometown shaped his writing later in life, adding a level of realism and depth to his books still celebrated to this day. In Laura Boffa's book, Writing Home, she explores Wolfe's early life from his childhood home in Asheville, North Carolina to his travels around the Midwest, and eventual return to Asheville. Beautiful illustrations throughout bring Wolfe's story to life. It is the story of one young man's journey to become a writer, a journey filled with triumph, longing, and a desire to follow one's dream...
