"....tells how Thomas Wolfe and Robert Raynolds happened to meet, how they became friends, how their friendship grew, survived a crisis, and continued until the death of Thomas Wolfe.. ..The story is told with understanding, with humor, and with compassion....It is a responsible and considered memoir in honor of human friendship, and it brings the vivid character of Thomas Wolfe directly into the presence of the reader. T h e s t o r y is full of daily portraits of Thomas Wolfe. What did he look like in his room, pacing the floor, or writing? How did he appear on the streets of Brooklyn or Manhattan, day or night? Or walking in the morning in a pine forest, or r un ni n g hi s ha nd gently over a block of marble in an abandoned quarry, or tramping fields of snow after midnight?....This is a story of the plain and real Thomas Wolfe, of his human goodness, his bone-deep weariness in labor, his sudden joy in bei ng un de rst oo d a nd loved by a fellow man. And this is the story - for the friends were two - of how Robert Raynolds honored the grace of being a friend of Thomas Wolfe." Minor edge wear.
