Synopsis : The idea for this book is so simple and obvious, its surprising that it has never been done before. Author John Griffin read Thomas Wolfe's classic, Look Homeward, Angel in college and promptly fell in love with the fictionalized Gant family. An obsession turned into a labor of love as he tracked down photos of Wolfe's real family for the better part of twenty years. The result is this beautiful book brimming with photos of Wolfe's exuberant siblings, parents, and acquaintances with accompanying passages from the novel. Griffin theorized that Wolfe may have been inspired in his writing by his own family's photo album. Wolfe's own brother Fred, confirmed this -- "As soon as Tom returned to America he came home to get the old family photo album to jog his memory of things that had happened when he was growing up. Some of the photos are described perfectly in Angel."
A propos de l'auteur: John Chandler Griffin is professor of English at the University of South Carolina at Lancaster. Besides his teaching career, Griffin is a freelance writer and the author of several books on South Carolina sports.
