Summary
The Eighth Day (1967), an enthralling novel in which Wilder revisits the small-town America of Our Town to stage a philosophical who-dunit; a wrongful conviction for murder and a daring rescue frame a meditation on the mysteriousness of justice, fate, and "the impassioned will," for which "nothing is impossible." Wilder's final novel, the semi-autobiographical Theophilus North (1973), is an affectionate portrait of Newport, Rhode Island, in the 1920s and a playful, valedictory glance at Wilder's young manhood. As a special feature, this third and final volume of The Library of America edition of Wilder's collected works includes three never-before-published chapters from Wilder's unfinished autobiography in which he engagingly recalls his boarding school experience in China, his college days at Yale, and an uneasy visit to Salzburg just before the Nazi Anschluss
