This classic of American literature tells the story of George Webber, a rising novelist, who returns to his hometown only to face a wave of hatred and rejection from the inhabitants, who feel his latest work ridicules their way of life. George goes into exile, first in New York, then London and continental Europe, living life to the full but burdened by the belief that he can never return to his roots. This work, although published posthumously and heavily edited from Wolfe's surviving manuscripts, has done much to confirm his place as one of the leading American novelists of the 20th Century. This handsome new edition from Benediction Classics includes the full unabridged text of the published version.
