The Web and the Rock, Thomas Wolfe (true 1st ed.)
Item Details
Description
“Up to the time George Webber’s father died, there were some unforgiving souls in the town of Libya Hill who spoke of him as a man who not only had deserted his wife and child, but had consummated his iniquity by going off to live with another woman.” The man who wrote like a literate volcano begins this novel in a burst of words that hints at the pith of the story—one man’s discovery of life and the world…discovery not in a sudden and explosive sense but discovery through a process of finding out, and finding out as a man has to find out, through error and through trial, through fantasy and illusion, through being mistaken and wrong and an idiot and egotistical and aspiring and hopeful and believing and confused, and pretty much what every one of us is, and goes through, and finds out about, and becomes. This is the true first edition, with E-O on the copy right page and stated “First Edition.” The Web and the Rock by Thomas Wolfe. Published 1939 by Harper and Brothers (first edition). Rear hinge cracked but holding. Clean, with normal shelf wear. In clear plastic jacket. 6 x 8.25. 695 pp.
