The Web and the Rock

Livre numérique

This is a powerful semi-autobiographical novel by an authentic man of genius, Thomas Wolfe - about the struggles and triumphs of an aspiring writer named George Webber in the glittering world of New York, about one young man's discovery of life and the world. It follows Webber from humble Southern beginnings to his arrival in The Big City to write. Then he meets Esther Jack, and things go as differently - but wonderfully so - as they possibly could. A beautiful and wealthy socialite - and married woman - Esther reveals life and New York for him like nothing before.

George Webber's youthful aspirations and the rise and fall of his turbulent passion for Esther make for an unforgettable experience.
