Thomas Wolfe is best know for his autobiographical novel, Look Homeward, Angel.

Because Thomas Wolfe's writing of his memories growing up in the boarding house were so frank and realistic his book Look Homeward, Angel was banned from Asheville's public library for more than seven years when it was first printed.

His mother's boardinghouse, known as "The Old Kentucky Home Boarding House" and is now the Thomas Wolfe Memorial, has become one of literature's most famous landmarks.
