Thomas Wolfe and His Editors: Establishing a True Text for the Posthumous Publications

Normon, OK: Univ of Oklahoma Press, 1987. First Edition, First Printing. Fine Hardcover in a Near Fine Dust Jacket.



This meticulous comparison of the manuscripts in Harvard's Houghton Library with the published versions of The Web and the Rock, You Can't Go Home Again, and The Hills Beyond leads Field to conclude that Aswell was not, as some contend, the books' co-author. While he had to cut, discard, and alter to avoid libel and achieve coherence, he remained true to Wolfe's grand fictional design.


No Flaws or Blemishes but minimal rubs on the fold of the front dust jacket flap; Still Gift Quality. 8vo; 9.5 inches tall; 214 pages with Chapter Notes, Bibliography and Index.
