I wonder if we could put together a list of the "easiest" or "most
accessible" Wolfe?  "Wolfe for Beginners"?  I recently saw someone
recommend "Fifth Head of Cerebrus" as a place to start with Wolfe, but
that seems to me to be one of his more obscure and difficult works (but
then I'm biased, because it's my least favorite, for some reason).  Here's
my list:

the Long Sun books
Peace (especially for non SF-readers)
maybe Devil in the Forest
maybe the Soldier books (especially for a fan of Mythology)

War Beneath the Tree
The Last Thrilling Wonder Story
A Cabin on the Coast
How I Lost the Second World War
When I Was Ming the Merciless
