    Als "Schau heimwärts, Engel!" 1929 veröffentlicht wurde, schlug der Roman des erst 29-jährigen Thomas Wolfe ein wie eine Bombe. Der Literaturnobelpreisträger Sinclair Lewis bezeichnete das Werk als "eine kolossalische Schöpfung von tiefer Lebenslust" und William Faulkner rühmte Wolfe als den überragenden Autor seiner Generation. Mit dem Familienepos um Eugene Gant, der seiner Familie und der amerikanischen Provinz den Rücken kehrt und seiner Herkunft doch nicht entkommen kann, hat Thomas Wolfe einen Roman geschaffen, der fast ein Jahrhundert nach seinem Erscheinen noch immer unzählige Menschen in seinen Bann schlägt.

    Mit allem, was nachts auf Erden geschieht, hatte ich Bekanntschaft gemacht, und schließlich auch nachts jene drei Gefährten kennengelernt, mit denen ich meines Lebens besten Teil zubrachte, - den stolzen Tod und dessen Geschwister, die strenge Einsamkeit und den großen Schlaf." So beginnt die Erzählung von Thomas Wolfe, in der er nächtliche Begebenheiten von Menschen, Schicksalen und Tod im New York der 1920er Jahre schildert.

    L'autore di "Angelo guarda il passato", che è stato indicato dalla critica in modo contraddittorio a volte come genio ("Genius" fra l'altro è il titolo dell'ultimo film che descrive la sua vita) e a volte come scrittore fallito, specie se paragonato al suo contemporaneo Faulkner, scrive questi racconti in modo lirico, sregolato, come se fosse la scrittura a travolgere lui stesso e non lui a padroneggiarla col mestiere del letterato.
