Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Wolfe's 1937 autobiographical novella about the death of his brother evinces the author's fascination with time and remembrance. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Originally edited into a short story for Redbook , Wolfe's novella has finally been published unabridged. Like much of Wolfe's work, this is a thinly veiled autobiographical account of an incident in his family. The story is divided into four sections, each with a different character's voice and viewpoint. Grover Gant's poetical perspective on life in the town square and his experience with a local shopkeeper opens the piece. In Part 2, Grover's proud mother describes her son's precocious power over people on the train to the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. Years later, in Part 3, an older sister remembers her last escapade with her brother before he fell ill. And Part 4 finds Grover's youngest brother (Wolfe) in search of the house in which his barely remembered brother died 30 years earlier. For comprehensive Wolfe collections.--Cathy Sabol, Northern Virginia Community Coll., Manassas (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
