Thomas Wolfe. O Lost. Columbia: University of South Carolina Press, 2000.

O Lost is the original, unedited version of Look Homeward, Angel, Thomas Wolfe’s classic novel about a sensitive young man growing up in pre-Depression Altamont, a fictional version of the author’s hometown of Asheville. Wolfe’s manuscript was cut and reshaped by the author with the help of legendary editor Maxwell Perkins. Now readers can see the raw material for themselves, including a long introductory section on protagonist Eugene Gant’s ancestors in the Civil War.
