Tom Wolfe | Back to Blood
Listen to MP3 audio
New Journalism pioneer and literary superstar Tom Wolfe has carefully recorded popular culture for more than four decades. “What makes him so good is his ability… to get under the skin of a phenomenon and transmit its metabolic rhythm” (Newsweek). Wolfe is the author of more than a dozen books, among them such contemporary classics as The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, The Bonfire of the Vanities, and The Right Stuff, which received the American Book Award and the Columbia Journalism Award. His new novel, Back to Blood probes class, family, wealth, race, crime, sex, corruption, and ambition in contemporary Miami.
