“Wolfe made it possible to believe that the stuff of life, with all its awe and mystery and magic, could by some strange alchemy be transmuted to the page.” William Gay, author of The Long Home

Author Bio: Thomas Wolfe

Author Bio: Thomas Wolfe

Thomas Clayton Wolfe (1900–1938) was an American novelist of the early twentieth century, author of four lengthy novels, plus many short stories, dramatic works, and novellas. He is known for mixing highly original, poetic, rhapsodic, and impressionistic prose with autobiographical writing. His influence extends to the writings of beat generation writer Jack Kerouac and of authors Ray Bradbury and Philip Roth, among others. He remains an important writer in modern American literature, as one of the first masters of autobiographical fiction, and is considered North Carolina’s most famous writer.
