A??If John SteinbeckA??s mighty Grapes of Wrath is the tragic novel of the Great Depression, then HeavenA??s My Destination is its comic masterpiece. A??J.D. McClatchy
A hilarious tale about goodness in a fallen world, HeavenA??s My Destination introduces George Marvin Brush, one of Thornton Wilder's most memorable characters. Brush, a traveling textbook salesman, is a fervent religious convert who is determined to lead a good life. With sad and sometimes hilarious consequences, his travels take him through smoking cars, bawdy houses, banks, and campgrounds from Texas to IllinoisA??and into the soul of Depression-era America itself.
This special edition includes an afterword by WilderA??s nephew, Tappan Wilder, with illuminating material about the author and book.
