Thornton Wilder: The Eighth Day, Theophilus North, Autobiographical Writings

Edited by J. D. McClatchy

“You have to hand it to a writer willing to attack the big questions head on, and to embed those questions in the story of small-town America, and then surround it all in the grandeur of the grandeur of America, and then abase some of its citizens for venality while others rise to existential heights.”—Harold Augenbraum, Executive Director of the National Book Foundation
