She has written a traditional biography taking us from Thomas' birth in 1900 through his life until his untimely death at age 38. She uses many quotations from his personal papers she had and also much of what Wolfe wrote of himself in his books. Not only knowing the key players in Thomas Wolfe's life but also being an active participant herself, helps bring the life of Thomas Wolfe, the writer, to life. This was a man who had to write, who said in one letter that if he couldn't he would surely explode.
Though this is a dated biography it is yet a very readable one. Elizabeth Nowell also was the editor of the letters of Thomas Wolfe. Her book remains a valuable edition concerning the life of Thomas Wolfe.
