FROM THE JACKET:
The towering figure of Thomas Wolfe
emerges in all his vitality and complex*!
in this book, the definitive biography An
drew Turnbull records succinctly and with
great narrative skill a tumultuous life
Wolfe was a fortunate man of genius -
fortunate in the support and recognition
given him; and yet he lived in a tempest,
created by his furious drive to encompass
and express so much.
The story of Thomas Wolfe, ranging from
Asheville, North Carolina to Berlin, con­
tains a large cast of characters. Among the
men and women close to him—his family,
his teachers, other writers—two people
hold crucial places in Thomas Wolfe. One
is Aline Bernstein, the gifted stage design­
er who gave him understanding and de­
votion in their intense, agonizing love
affair. The other is Maxwell Perkins, to
whom Wolfe became a son as well as the
most fascinating and exhausting problem
of his editorial career. Andrew TurnbulTs
biography, filled with stories of Wolfe's
outrageous and often comic behavior,
closes with a precise, moving account of
the illness at Seattle and the death at
Johns Hopkins which is a superlative piece
of biographical writing.
With the cooperation of the Estate, Mr.
Turnbull has had access to all the Wolfe
documents. He has interviewed several
hundred people. This meticulous research
supports the portrait of a great writer. Ev­
erything about Thomas Wolfe was out­
size, extreme, and in conflict: his warmth
and gentleness and his cruelty; his gregar-
iousness and loneliness; his gusto and
despair. It is all here in Thomas Wolfe.
