Well, only children are another of Wolfe's themes that he's mentioned in 
essays - I can't refer to the originals, but they are quoted in Wright's 
book, "Attending Daedelus" - given that he was an only child.

If we're going to do a survey of this, though, I think we should focus 
mainly on the novels. I don't think anyone's mentioned the odd family 
situation of Art Ormsby yet.
