"One of the most American books ever written. . . . Thornton Wilder's best, and most unexpected, book." -Wilfrid Sheed

Meet 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 Illinois--and into the soul of America itself.

This edition of Heaven's My Destination includes an illuminating afterword by Wilder's nephew, Tappan Wilder, that draws on such unique sources as Thornton Wilder's unpublished letters, business records, and obscure family recollections, adding a special dimension to this hilarious tale about goodness in a fallen world.
