Abstract:

This novel was published posthumously in 1940 after heavy editing by Edward Aswell. Like Wolfe's other works, it is largely autobiographical and provides a glimpse into life in the 1930s. As the sequel to 'The Web and the Rock' (1939), this book continues the story of the main character, George Webber. George has written a successful novel about his family and hometown. When he returns to that town he is shaken by the force of the outrage and hatred that greets him. Family and friends feel naked and exposed by the truths they have seen in his book, and their fury drives him from his home. He begins a search for his own identity that takes him to New York and a hectic social whirl; to Paris with an uninhibited group of expatriates; to Berlin, lying cold and sinister under Hitler's shadow. At last Webber returns to America and rediscovers it with love, sorrow, and hope.
