Wolfe in the Library of America

Just when it looks like Thomas Wolfe is about to drop out of the canon, he pops back up again. As the holder of the largest published collection of works by and about Wolfe, the North Carolina Collection keeps an eye on all things Wolfean and we were excited to learn that the Asheville native’s works would soon be published by the Library of America. The latest Library of America e-Newsletter reports that in a reader survey asking what authors currently missing from the series should be included, Wolfe was among the top twenty mentioned, along with Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald, both fellow Scribner’s authors and proteges of Maxwell Perkins. There is no word yet on when the Wolfe volumes will appear.
