The Hills Beyond
AMONG the mass of manuscripts left behind him by Thomas Wolfe, whose untimely death will never cease to be mourned by his admirers here and abroad, were all manner of stories, sketches, and unfinished novels in which his eager, struggling spirit strove to express itself — and failed or succeeded, according to your valuation or the next man’s. This volume contains the last gleanings and cullings from his hitherto-unpublished work. It is of uneven quality. It will neither add to nor detract from his reputation. But it is of value and of interest to those who see in Thomas Wolfe a potential genius never quite realized or achieved.
