RIP Tom Wolfe Author of "The Right Stuff"

Recommended Posts

His The Painted Word was an interesting indictment of that particular corner of the art world.

 

RIP

Oh that is a serious loss. "The Right Stuff" is wonderfully observed historical reportage. Wolfe originally planned to take the book right up through the Apollo missions, but felt the resulting book would be unreadably long.

I regretfully still have not read The Bonfire of the Vanities.

It's well worth getting a copy, Marvin. As usual, the book is better and more subtle than the film.

Believe I actually do have a copy of it on the endless shelf of (reading) shame.

 

 

I've also never seen the movie. Hmm.
