The Paonia Literary Book Club will meet on the first Wednesday of every month at the Paonia Library. This month the group will be discussing “Look Homeward, Angel” written by Thomas Wolfe. 

“Look Homeward, Angel: A Story of the Buried Life” is a 1929 novel by Thomas Wolfe. It is Wolfe’s first novel and is considered a highly autobiographical American coming-of-age story.[1] The character of Eugene Gant is generally believed to be a depiction of Wolfe himself. The novel briefly recounts Eugene’s father’s early life, but primarily covers the span of time from Eugene’s birth in 1900 to his definitive departure from home at the age of 19. The setting is a fictionalization of his home town of Asheville, North Carolina, called Altamont in the novel. 

A restored version of the original manuscript of Look Homeward, Angel, titled O Lost, was published in 2000.
