    Wolfe's Sequel to His Legendary First Novel

    Thomas Wolfe. Of Time and the River. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1935.

    First edition. Octavo. 912 pages.

    Publisher's black cloth with gilt titles, ruled in green and gilt. Original dust jacket. Boards lightly dust-soiled along the spine, upper boards, and top textblock edge. The stylish dust jacket is price-clipped, with the spine slightly faded, minimal loss at the corners, and moderate edge wear. A very good copy.

    This sequel to Wolfe's landmark Look Homeward, Angel took the author five years to complete and was met with critical acclaim upon its publication, prompting Malcolm Cowley to write in The New Republic that "Thomas Wolfe at his best is the only contemporary American writer who can be mentioned in the same breath with Dickens and Dostoevsky."
