Miscellaneous Rumbles

RIP Tom Wolfe


Tom Wolfe, journalist and writer of "The Right Stuff" and "Bonfire of the Vanities" died Monday at the age of 88.


To sad. I'm a fan of his work. He was a great storyteller.


I go hot and cold with his works. Some I really enjoy (Right Stuff, Salinger), some I simply don't "get" (Electric Cool-Aid Acid Test, A Man In Full).

Regardless, he was among the best, and they're on my shelves.



I read all his early stuff back in the day, he was not afraid to poke fun at society's uptight notions. Mister we could use a man like him about now. RIP
