About this title

Synopsis:

American novelist Thomas Wolfe (1900-1938) led a short but turbulent life.  His writing was almost purely autobiographical, poignantly capturing his experiences and pursuits.  Wolfe had a gift for illuminating his life so that the reader could almost visualize his painful youth and tumultuous manhood.   Now, for the first time, in Looking Homeward, Morton Teicher lets us see all of the real-life people and places behind the fiction of Thomas Wolfe in a collection of 245 snapshots that chronicle this great writer's life in a way that mere words cannot.

Wolfe's family and friends took a remarkable number of photographs, and Teicher has spent decades collecting these images.  With photos ranging from W.O. Wolfe, Thomas's strong-willed father, to Aline Bernstein, the older, married womand Wolfe desperately loved, from Wolfe's hometown of Asheville, North Carolina, to the hospital where he died, Teicher has compiled a comprehensive photographic history of Thomas Wolfe.  Childhood photographs and snapshots of siblings, friends, teachers, and editors are shown, as well as Wolfe's many vacation photos.  Looking Homeward is complete with images of the original dust jackets for Wolfe's books and a section on artistic renderings of Wolfe.

With captions and an introduction that indicate the parallels between the life and the fiction, as well as a chronology, this book will be pure pleasure for any Wolfe fan and an important resource for students of literature.  Teicher has provided an engrossing sequence of looks at one of America's great novelists.

About the Author:

Morton I. Teicher is Dean Emeritus, School of Social Work at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.  He helped organize the Thomas Wolfe Society in 1980 and has served as board member, Vice-President, and President.  Teicher is author or editor of several other books.

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
