It might be a little bit over reaching to say that Thomas Wolfe wrote the great American novel. Yet, in the same breath it might not.

I have to see a thing a thousand times before I see it once.” -Thomas Wolfe

In You Can’t Go Home Again Wolfe explores ideas of a changing America, including the great 1929 stock market crash and the American conception of prosperity. A worthwhile summer read, Wolfe’s style is easily accessible and engrossing.
